> Hello, I am trying to build pkg-config on my raspberry pi 4B running the most up to date version of raspbian. I have installed both gettext and libconfig, which seem to be the only dependencies. The ./configure ended up working as expected. Once running the sudo make, the readout eventually gives the following
> gconvert.c:61:2: error: #error GNU libiconv not in use but included iconv.h is from libiconv
>  #error GNU libiconv not in use but included iconv.h is from libiconv
>   ^~~~~

> I’m pretty new at this whole Linux/Unix kind of thing so I really have no idea of where to go from here, since neither the libiconfig’s README or INSTALL text files had any relevant info. The pkg-config README and INSTALL texts provided me with no helpful info, at least that I understand. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
