I followed Spiders instruction for unmerging libiconv and rebuild glibc.
But now kdelibs 3.0.1 won't build. I diged down that it fails because my libxslt
still depend on libiconv.
But a rebuild of libxslt-1.0.17 fails with the following output:
make: Entering directory
/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link gcc -march=i686 -O3 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer
-Wall -o libexslt.la -rpath /usr/lib -version-info 7:8:7 exslt.lo common.lo

sed: can't read /usr/lib/libiconv.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/usr/lib/libiconv.la' is not a valid libtool archive
make: *** [libexslt.la] Error 1
I wasn't able to rebuild it, but finaly i unmerged libxslt-1.0.17 (with the
builtin libiconv) and emerged it clean.
It isn't really a bug, and i found a workaround, but i wan't to document this
strange behaivor of libxslt because i haven't found it in bugzilla or the
Thanks, another one to the list of packages that link libiconv.
