When building converters/libiconv under Linux, the install for
charset.alias, does a

 if test @GLIBC21@ = no;

This GLIBC21 was set to "yes" (although it is 2.2.5). So lib/charset.alias
is not installed.

The pkgsrc install says:

/bin/ls: /usr/lib/charset.alias: No such file or directory
===> Registering installation for libiconv-1.8
pkg_create: can't stat `/usr/lib/charset.alias

And it can't be packaged.

But on another Linux box, I have:

$ grep charset.alias /var/db/pkg/*/+CONTENTS
/var/db/pkg/bison-1.35/+CONTENTS:@comment from libiconv: lib/charset.alias
/var/db/pkg/libiconv-1.8/+CONTENTS:@comment lib/charset.alias

This is what I want. I can't figure out where this @comment was added. I
looked at some old pkgsrc, but don't see it.

(Maybe I did something manually myself, but I can't remember.)

Any suggestions?
