No, Macports ghc links against the symbol iconv from /usr/lib/libSystem. See: https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/blob/c7c7f3f90e1140a0d4826bb94502fd7a4ae40459/lang/ghc/Portfile#L213-L218 <https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/blob/c7c7f3f90e1140a0d4826bb94502fd7a4ae40459/lang/ghc/Portfile#L213-L218> https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/-/issues/18752 <https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/-/issues/18752> https://trac.macports.org/ticket/57821 <https://trac.macports.org/ticket/57821> The MacPorts ghc binary is rock solid to the best of my knowledge. If you want to compile ghc against libiconv (not libSystem), then must contend with the name mangling issue inherent in the libiconv library, discussed in the last link above. Recommendation on macOS: just install the MacPorts binaries. They work, they’re compiled from source, and they’re managed. > On Oct 13, 2021, at 9:49 PM, Carter Schonwald <carter.schonw...@gmail.com> > wrote: > > The issue would be macports.
