Comment (by mouse07410):

 > The system libiconv and the version provided by the libiconv port are
 not 100% compatible even if the symbol renaming were turned off.
 I'm not sure I fully understand. If an app can be built against either
 library without modifying its source, then these two are compatible

 > If your lib was built against the system libiconv, you need to use it
 with the system libiconv
 All I can say is "I'm trying, without much success so far..."  ;-) ;-(

 > If {{{-L/path/to -lfoo}}} is not working, try simply
 An excellent advice. I don't understand why this would work, while the
 {{{-L/some/thing}}} doesn't, but apparently it seemed to work! Thank you,
