pkgsrc is supposed to encode the runpath into the binaries and if that
doesn't happen it is a bug. What version of Solaris are you on, what
architecture, what compiler and which ld(1) is the compiler using?
If you changed any of those you probably need to rebuild the
libtool-base package.

Does the linker error happen in the libiconv package or in some
package that depends on it?
