        Attempting to build converters/wv2 on a NetBSD 3.0 system
        fails - it detects the available iconv cannot handle what
        it requires.

        I use pkg_comp with libkver and NetBSD 3.0 sets (including Xfree86)
        installed to obtain a NetBSD 3.0 environment.

        In that, building converters/wv2 produces ...

checking for iconv... yes
checking iconv.h usability... yes
checking iconv.h presence... yes
checking for iconv.h... yes
checking sys/iconv.h usability... no
checking sys/iconv.h presence... no
checking for sys/iconv.h... no
checking need for const in iconv... yes
checking whether the iconv installation is complete enough... no

wv2 depends on a modern iconv installation, supporting UNICODELITTLE and
UNICODEBIG. The detected iconv version doesn't support these conversions.

Please get a new libiconv from
You might want to install the library to some alternative directory, in
order not to overwrite your current installation. Please use the option
--with-libiconv=DIR to specify the location.

configure: error: * * * No iconv support - unable to continue * * *
*** Error code 1

make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/converters/wv2

        I assume the obvious fix is to have this package depend upon
        the pkgsrc version of iconv on older versions of NetBSD, but
        I'll leave it for someone how understands how to correctly do
        that to actually provide the patch (I'm happy to test it...)
