 This looks wrong.
 Why is it needed unconditionally, and for all objects that are linked?
 In particular, it seems to work fine without PREFER_PKGSRC.
 I also don't understand the explanation: "The configure of cups checks
 the existence of both iconv.h and iconv_open(3) which libc.a has for
 POSIX. The configure check is wrong. In fact cups needs GNU libiconv.
 Cups tries to link libiconv_open() and the compilation failed."
 If the configure check is wrong, please fix that instead.
 Further, the diff includes changes to poppler, which are not commented
 upon at all, adding libiconv/ Does poppler directly need
 libiconv? If not, it's probably pulled in by some dependency and
 should be fixed in its instead.
