working with -current? The iconv functions have been added recently and it
changes the behaviour of the /usr/pkgsrc/converters/libiconv/buildlink2.mk
script under NetBSD. I have two problems as a result of this:
1) Libraries that already exist and depend on libiconv now can't resolv their
dependencies when used by other packages. and example I had was
libiconv --> libxml2 --> libxslt. Going back and rebuilding libxml2 fixed
this for me.
2) packages that define USE_GNU_ICONV=yes fail when they are in turn used by
other packages. One workaround may be to propagate USE_GNU_ICONV=yes via
their respective buildlink.mk scripts? I'm seeing this in glib2 -> atk and
glib2 -> pango. Just removing USE_GNU_ICONV might work but I assume it was
added to glib2 for a reason.
Can someone more familiar with buildlink and pkgsrc take a look at this?
