i tried it out and it doesn't solve the problem. your cvs changelog says:

[...] The symptoms appear to match the situation where a library exists
in /usr/lib that matches the name of the pkgsrc-installed library, but the
corresponding .la file doesn't exist in /usr/lib. [...]

but that is not the case. i do not have any libiconv* files in /usr/lib. the 
only iconv file is iconv.h in /usr/include (sorry, i forgot to tell you 

$ locate iconv | grep -v kde | grep -v pkgsrc

the error message is the same as before:
