./converters/libiconv, Character set conversion library

Branch: CURRENT, 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:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

Log message:
converters/libiconv: allow to skip --with-libiconv-prefix

There are several GNU configure scripts that don't support this option.
These packages can be found by setting GNU_CONFIGURE_STRICT=yes in
mk.conf. To allow these packages to build nevertheless, packages have to
skip this option explicitly, for backwards compatibility.

Log message:
converters: align variable assignments

pkglint -Wall -F --only aligned --only indent -r

No manual corrections.

Log message:
converters/libiconv: disable GNU_CONFIGURE_STRICT check

The check would report many unknown options. This is only because
libiconv has several configure scripts, and in the end, all given options
are necessary.

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.

Bump PKGREVISION.

Log message:
Ensure 'cd dir && make' rules are executed in a sub-shell, allowing us to
remove MAKE_JOBS_SAFE=no.  We can't depend on gmake due to circular
dependencies.
