      Among other things. It's pretty hard to build something +python that
      works on 10.2 and 10.3 without actually including Python itself (which
      is possible and actually pretty easy since Python is a framework).

      The linker command "-liconv" is going to use /usr/lib/libiconv.dylib,
      so that's probably what you should test for.
