FreeBSD sometimes can't build pkgsrc libiconv. The strange thing is, that the problem only occurs on a clean system, with only minimal package subset installed.
Get a FreeBSD system; cd /usr/pkgsrc/devel/libiconv/ && bmake

CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --enable-relocatable

to libiconv's Makefile

Library built with this options works very good with FreeBSD, but I can't be sure with other operating systems. Please flank the ARGS+= line with .if ${OPSYS} == "FreeBSD" in case you're also unsure.
