I have installed the libiconv from SunFreeware which like all my
'personal' installations go into /proj/chris.  I also always configure
with prefix=/proj/chris so the configure script finds the iconv.h in
/proj/chris/include without further parameters to configure.  However one
would then expect it to find the iconv library too which is, of course,
in /proj/chris/lib.  It all works without any problems for ncurses and
other things that I have also installed in /proj/chris so it does seem
that there is something amiss with iconv.

I don't use any explicit settings of CPPFLAGS or CFLAGS.
