That should not be entirely correct. libiconv/buildlink3.mk will
be pulled in so that its builtin.mk can decide whether or not
libiconv is needed.

Why is that necessary? gettext's buildlink3.mk already pulls it

It did not occur to me that gettext would work without libiconv,
since it already had some logic to pull it in if it wasn't
built-in to the system. If gtar-base was working with gettext
but not libiconv, shouldn't the libiconv dependency be removed
