iconv vs. libiconv confusion

  Does anyone understand the difference between iconv_open and libiconv_open,
and why the libiconv package supplies a header that declares only iconv_XXX
and a library that defines only libiconv_XXXX?  I find this confusing, and so
does ./configure and friends.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
