So I feel that hard dependency on converters/libiconv is right.

I wonder if we should flag this as bug upstream. I don't see why groff
should do canonisation of character set names in first place.

Well, but for the moment we need some kind of fix.

If Akio would use, usual result would be applied.
That might allow overriding of USE_BUILTIN.iconv for NetBSD's without 

Further: it looks that it searches for libiconv - so they might know about the
conflicting charset.alias which is tried to prevent by patch-ab …

Simply patching the own charset.alias out and adding a hard requirement to
converters/libiconv is no solution because of the side effects.

Other proposals?

Probably, origin of this issue is same as PR pkg/48036, it should be fixed.
Dropping dependency on converters/libiconv for groff is not relevant to
this issue.  Even if the dependency is dropped, the issue will still happen
with existence of iconv from pkgsrc.
