net/rsync can use libiconv. It checks for the presence of it via autoconf. But 
due to suboptimal tests (or usage of their results), using gcc under Solaris, 
the build fails. Solaris' libiconv is considered sufficient, which it is not. 
Using the Sun Studio compiler, the tests fails in a different way, and libiconv 
is not used. See

for reference.


.include "../../converters/libiconv/"

fixes the problem. Maybe this could be done conditionally (only for SunOS), but 
I think it is not a bad idea in general.
