converters/libiconv breakage with new glibc

Just a "heads up":

This is the relevant log entry from gnulib git:

I'm not sure how many people are using pkgsrc with a pkgsrc-provided libiconv where this would matter, but in that case the build fails.

    stdio: don't assume gets any more
    Gnulib intentionally does not have a gets module, and now that C11
    and glibc have dropped it, we should be more proactive about warning
    any user on a platform that still has a declaration of this dangerous
    * m4/stdio_h.m4 (gl_STDIO_H, gl_STDIO_H_DEFAULTS): Drop gets
    * modules/stdio ( Likewise.
    * lib/stdio-read.c (gets): Likewise.
    * tests/ Likewise.
    * m4/warn-on-use.m4 (gl_WARN_ON_USE_PREPARE): Fix comment.
    * lib/ (gets): Make warning occur in more places.
    * doc/posix-functions/gets.texi (gets): Update documentation.
