What system are you building on? Are you building for the local host or
for a different system?

The makefile is supposed to figure out automatically if -liconv must be
passed or not. In your case it thinks it should be passed but your
linker disagrees.

What does the following command return?

$ /sbin/ldconfig -p | grep libiconv\\.so

Do you have any package named libiconv installed? If not, does any
installed package include libiconv.so, and if yes, where is it located?
