6 First, next time you send a one month delayed reply to a list it would
7 be nice if you didn't cut out who wrote the first mail (it turned out to
8 be me).

12 That is the entire problem.

16 If the problem that pilot-link doesn't get built correctly is the fault
17 of pilot-link it should be blamed.

22 That isn't always equal to the script being correct though.

27 The problem was that configure found iconv in our glibc but it didn't
28 set HAVE_ICONV=1 in pi-config.h. If I did
30 echo "#define HAVE_ICONV 1" >> pi-config.h
32 after configure had run it built correctly with ICONV support. So I
33 think that in someway the configure-script was broken. Haven't had time
34 to look more deeply into it. Might also be our autoconf but I haven't
35 had any problems with any other packages than pilot-link.
