news/slrn from pkgsrc-2005Q1 cannot find libiconv on NetBSD/i386 1.6.2:

  Making all in src
  /usr/bin/make  all-am
  cc  -O2 -I/usr/pkg/include -I/usr/include  -L/usr/pkg/lib \
  -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -L/usr/lib -Wl,-R/usr/lib -o chkslang  chkslang.o \
  /usr/pkg/lib/ /usr/pkg/lib/ /usr/lib/
-Wl,-rpath -Wl,/usr/pkg/lib -L/usr/pkg/lib -lslang -ltermcap -lintl -lm
  ld: cannot find -liconv

This is ok, since news/slrn/Makefile does not include the
file from libiconv and hence iconv.h and libiconv.* are not available
below the .buildlink directory.

If I include the missing in the pkgsrc Makfile, slrn
builds without problems.

Is it ok to change this in CVS?

How did the bulk builds for NetBSD 1.6.2 ever build slrn successfully
without this?
