This is typical of linking against the wrong iconv library; Apple ships an
ancient one, so both MacPorts and Homebrew ship modern ones which most
things (notably including glib) require. But both rename symbols, because
otherwise something which compiles against the newer one but links against
the old one will link fine and then dump core on the first call to an iconv
