You're a brave man; not many people use that.

Why do you need AM_ICONV?  Are you using iconv directly?  Typically,
these days, people just put this into their


and then they don't need to worry about gettext's use of iconv, since
they don't have an intl subdirectory.

It's a bad idea to rely on this, since it means that only you can
configure your package.  I would put those .m4 files into an m4
subdirectory of your package, and distribute those .m4 files.
Then you can use aclocal -I m4.  Most people do it this eay.

Not that I know of, but quite possibly there are some somewhere.
