The last time I built libiconv (since Gnome docs mentioned it) it messed 
up my installation pretty badly by overwriting some glibc headers. Did 
some research after that and turned out that that the pre-requisite was 
"an iconv implementation", not "libiconv". Glibc >= 2.1 satisfies that.

A search for libiconv in the archives provides info on how the system 
breaks after libiconv is installed.
