libiconv_xxx was used for a seperate and probably newer libiconv installed,
while iconv_xxx usually comes with glibc.
Is libiconv from me? I'll have to check these mistakes then.
clisp, where iconv is coming from, never used libiconv_*,
its iconv.m4 just tests for the main iconv_open, _close functions.
I mostly see these errors in php libs.
