It's just a mistake to put libiconv onto a system with a GLibc from the 
last 5 years. You need to delete all traces of it off your system,
or all sorts of things will break in weird ways.

(The problem looks like fontconfig included iconv.h from libiconv
rather than the correct system iconv.h, but wasn't linked with the
libiconv -liconv.)
