When I enter the command:
# rehash

Nothing happens. I still can't run the iconv command. In fact, I don't 
see an iconv executable file anywhere. I installed it as a package, and 
when I run the command:
# pkg_info -L iconv-2.0_3 | less

I get a list of files -- mainly .so files and .cct files in the 
/usr/local/lib and /usr/local/libexec/iconv directories. The only 
executable files are a biconv file and a iconv_mktbl, which is "perl 
script text executable."

I'm not sure what to do. Again, my main objective of to get ndis to 
convert a windows driver for my wireless nic card so I can use it on my 
Free BSD system.

When I run the command:
# biconv

I get the system sends back this message:
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libbiconv.so.2" not found, 
required by "biconv". I'm not sure it matters, but "libbiconv.so.2" is 
in the /usr/local/lib/ directory.

At this point I am totally lost. What else can I do to get iconv and 
ndis running?
