The latest versions of "pkgsrc/converters/libiconv/" - I 've got
revision 1.7 here - try to use NetBSD-current's builtin "iconv" support.
Unfortunately it doesn't populate the buildink2 are with the required links.
This results in build failures in e.g. the "wv" package:

===> Configuring for wv-0.7.4nb2
checking for wmf_stream_create in -lwmf... no
configure: error: * * * libwmf >= 0.2.1 required * * *
*** Error code 1


A look into "config.log" reveals what went wrong:

configure:2590: cc -E   -I/usr/pkg/include -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/X11R6/inc
lude -I/usr/X11R6/include/freetype2 -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/pkg/include/libw

configure: failed program was:
#line 2616 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
/* Override any gcc2 internal prototype to avoid an error.  */
/* We use char because int might match the return type of a gcc2
    builtin and then its argument prototype would still apply.  */
char wmf_stream_create();

int main() {
; return 0; }

And there indeed no shared library links in the buildlink2 directory:

tron@lyssa:/usr/pkgsrc/converters/wv>find work/.buildlink -name "*iconv*"

to use NetBSD-current's
cd pkgsrc/converters/wv

Building the package with "USE_GNU_ICONV" set to "YES" avoid the problem.
But it's not a real solution.
