      I actually tried once to enable libiconv with Vim 6 and the Mac
      patches, but there was some troubles with header that where not found.
      So I didn't investigate further because I didn't figure out why I had
      such an error. Maybe you will have better luck ?

      If you have fink installed, there are chances that libiconv is already
      installed. As I remember a simple change in the patched makefile
      #defines should allow you to specify that you want to compile iconv

      Good luck ;)

      BTW: If you manage this, I could write a CarbonVim package for Fink, as
      it is already the case for emacs-aqua
