Yes, I had this problem also on -current.  Does seamonkey build
on recent 8.x?

libxpcomio_s.a is a static library that has unresolved references
to libiconv.  I guess I'd expect those references to be resolved
with a later -L/usr/local/lib -liconv when building the shared
library (libxpcom_core.so), but they are not.
