Branch: pkgsrc-2017Q1, Version: 1.14nb3, Package name: libiconv-1.14nb3, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

libiconv is a character set conversion library that provides an iconv()
implementation for use on systems which don't have one, or whose
implementation cannot convert from/to Unicode.

It provides support for many encodings and can convert from any of
these encodings to any other, through Unicode conversion.

It has also some limited support for transliteration, i.e. when a character
cannot be represented in the target character set, it can be approximated
through one or several similarly looking characters. Transliteration is
activated when "//TRANSLIT" is appended to the target encoding name.

libiconv is for you if your application needs to support multiple character
encodings, but that support lacks from your system.

   Log message:
   Explicitly override iconv checks on SunOS, as GNU libiconv will change its
   own signature based on whether it finds itself already installed somewhere,
   which then breaks software (e.g. QT) which assumes its native signature.

   Restricted to SunOS for now as that's where it has been tested with positive
   results, but likely will be useful everywhere.
