This is a known problem with libtool and DESTDIR installations.
On some systems you simply cannot create an executable that should
link to /opt/csw/lib/libiconv.so if the library is not yet there.
On the other systems, libtool could do a bit better when you ask
to link with /tmp/pkgdir/opt/csw/lib/libiconv.la (it could use
So, in general, I recommend to do first the "make install" and then only
"make install DESTDIR=..."
