I tried building fontforge today on NetBSD 3.99.7. It compiled fine, but
when running it complained heavily about libiconv; apparently it was
unable to support several encodings, such as MacRoman.
The quick fix for me was to add
1. Why use the builtin libiconv? (The existence of a
converters/libiconv/builtin.mk file tells me that there must be a good
2. Is my "fix" a good solution? (Is it better for other packages to use
the pkgsrc libiconv?)
3. Is there a way to force just fontforge to use pkgsrc libiconv?
Any comments/suggestions/jokes would be most welcome. Thanks,
