Subject [PATCH] link againt iconv on bsd
Date Fri, 19 Jul 2002 20:28:04 GMT

I'm finally able to build HEAD of svn against HEAD of apr and
apr-util on my FreeBSD system.

Even though HAVE_ICONV was #defined by apr-util (which causes the
apr_xlate routines to start calling iconv() routines), I was getting
link errors when linking svn binaries:  "iconv_open not defined".

It turned out the simple problem was a lack of '-liconv' on the link
line.  On linux, the iconv routines are part of libc.  On BSD, it's a
3rd party library.

So this patch just adds -liconv to the main set of $APRUTIL_LIBS.
Don't ask me how many hours it took me to figure this out.  >:-(

Is there a better way to do this?
