That definitely looks like it's after a perl module (perhaps the port is named p5.12-text-iconv?).

It's entirely possible that the perl MacPorts is using doesn't match up with the one that muttprint is using:
 /usr/bin/perl versus /opt/local/bin/perl5.12

Since modules get installed under each version of perl, it could be "missing".

Can you edit muttprint to ensure it's looking at the same version of Perl?
