Log message:
Add pcap bl3.

From Matthias Ferdinand; fixes build on Linux.  Should be a no-op on
BSD systems.

Log message:
Depend on iconv and stop installing charset.alias.

Surely it isn't ok for random packages to install charset.alias; it
will conflict.

Log message:
Add yajl bl3, because it fails without.

How this built in bulk builds before is a mystery to me.  No revbump
because either the old package is ok or it didn't build.
