        There is a known issue with libiconv on Snow Leopard: 

*) SL compiles 64 bit programs by default.

*) The 64 bit version of libiconv supplied by Apple gives 'standardized' names 
like iconv_open() rather than the commonly used libiconv_open() [which is 
included in the 32 bit library alongside iconv_open()].

*) This problem bites users trying to compile glib and possibly others i'm not 
aware of.

*) Fixes include forcing 32 bit compilation [i386] or patching the code.

*) Apple has closed bug reports for this behavior with: "Engineering has 
determined that this issue behaves as intended..."; i don't expect this issue 
to improve when Lion is released.

        I don't speak configure well enough to understand how our configure is 
checking this, so this may or may not have any relevance to your case.
