Perhaps, but on NetBSD nmh doesn't seem to link libiconv at all.

  pkg_info -L nmh|tail +4 | egrep . | xargs ldd

shows only libc and libtermcap.  It seems iconv is part of libc on

It looks like iconv is required to be part of libc:

so maybe it is in libc and there was an obsolete library on the build

In general, bulk build machines should be really vanilla.
