ok,

I found the magic sauce.

It's actually on my beastie box

It's here:
/usr/ports/converters/ruby-iconv

If you are new to FreeBSD [ like me ],
/usr/ports/
is loaded up with a bunch of software which you can install.

Usually software I find there installs cleanly with a simple
make
make install

So, I installed ruby-iconv and now
require 'iconv'
returns true rather than an exception.

Yep,

I too have just bumped into this issue.

I see it on a freebsd box:

bash jake oracle /usr/local 12 $ uname -a
FreeBSD jake.host.com 5.3-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE #0: Tue Nov  1
05:56:17 CST 2005     [EMAIL PROTECTED]
:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/JAKE
i386
bash jake oracle /usr/local 13 $

I compared my bsd box to my Mac:


bash jake oracle ~/o 24 $ find . -print|grep iconv
./lib/ruby/1.8/xsd/iconvcharset.rb
bash jake oracle ~/o 25 $ which ruby
/home/oracle/o/bin/ruby
bash jake oracle ~/o 26 $ ruby -v
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i386-freebsd5.3]
bash jake oracle ~/o 27 $
bash jake oracle ~/o 27 $

bash jake oracle ~/o 27 $ irb
irb(main):001:0> require 'iconv'
LoadError: no such file to load -- iconv
        from (irb):1:in `require'
        from (irb):1

bash jake oracle ~/o 28 $


bash maco-mois-powerbook-g4-17 maco /r 1 $ find . -print|grep iconv
./lib/ruby/1.8/doc/files/xsd/iconvcharset_rb.html
./lib/ruby/1.8/powerpc-darwin8.7.0/iconv.bundle
./lib/ruby/1.8/xsd/iconvcharset.rb
./share/ri/1.8/system/Iconv/iconv-c.yaml
./share/ri/1.8/system/Iconv/iconv-i.yaml
bash maco-mois-powerbook-g4-17 maco /r 2 $ which ruby
/r/bin/ruby
bash maco-mois-powerbook-g4-17 maco /r 3 $ ruby -v
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [powerpc-darwin8.7.0]
bash maco-mois-powerbook-g4-17 maco /r 4 $
bash maco-mois-powerbook-g4-17 maco /r 4 $
bash maco-mois-powerbook-g4-17 maco /r 4 $ irb
irb(main):001:0> require 'iconv'
require 'iconv'
=> true
irb(main):002:0> quit
bash maco-mois-powerbook-g4-17 maco /r 5 $

It looks like my Mac has some kind of iconv special sauce on it.
I assume it was put there when I installed ruby.

I'd like to find the said sauce for my freebsd beastie.
