Gnulib is a library of source files, including C files, Autoconf macros,

Guile uses Gnulib’s ‘libunistring’ module, which in turn depends on the
‘iconv’ module (see m4/gnulib-cache.m4 in the Guile tree).  The latter
is the one that provides the ‘--with-libiconv-prefix’ configure option
and the $(LTLIBICONV) variable used in libguile/Makefile.am.  On non-GNU
systems, that variable should be non-empty.

Hopefully this is enough info to ping address@hidden  :-)
