Use converters/libiconv from pkgsrc is a little bit odd and unclear.
My goal is to have converters/php-iconv build against GNU libiconv (I
need translit, wich is not available in NetBSD libiconv).

I tried two possibilities:
PREFER.iconv= pkgsrc - which build correctly (but I found a problem
with chat/libpurple, which cause broken but with
USE_GNU_ICONV everything works fine)
USE_GNU_ICONV= Yes - it also work

I tried to rebuild all packages with only USE_GNU_ICONV. I have about
80 total packages and all of them seems to work fine. With one problem
during build deve/bison.

And then I set only PREFER_PKGSRC+= libiconv but it ends with
converters/php-iconv with builtin libiconv.

My question is how is the proper way to build converters/php-iconv
with GNU libiconv?
