Issue with iconv on 10.4

I cannot seem to get iconv working on my mac.

Tiger 10.4.11
Apache 2

both installed via macports with no issues on installation.

I am using Zend Framework and this requires iconv.

So I installed p5-text-iconv via macports

sudo port install p5-text-iconv

Installed fine, no errors reported.
However PHP5 doesn't seem to be accessing it.

If I run the following commands I get these results.

man p5-text-iconv
No manual entry for p5-text-iconv

apropos p5-text-iconv
p5-text-iconv: nothing appropriate

which p5-text-iconv
no p5-text-iconv in /opt/subversion/bin/ /Library/Frameworks/ 
Python.framework/Versions/2.6/bin /bin /sbin /usr/bin /usr/sbin /opt/ 

locate p5-text-iconv

not sure what this means.

can anyone help me get this running?

Thanks in advance
