looking at 
IMHO the solution is not acceptable: you cannot include a header that is
not used at all in that file. None of the files you've patched so far
uses wchar.h directly, so the issue is with the BSD port and should be 
fixed there.

Notice that your issue is because your using your system's libxml2:

libxml/encoding.h includes /usr/local/include/iconv.h if
LIBXML_ICONV_ENABLED is defined. So you see that error on every OOo file
that includes a libxml header that in turn includes libxml/encoding.h

On Fedora, building with system libxml works fine, I don't get that
error. In fact, /usr/local/include/iconv.h has no line 114 and it does
not use mbstate_t at all.
I wonder how your system's iconv.h looks like, does it use mbstate_t at
all? Is your system's libxml configured with LIBXML_ICONV_ENABLED?
