I don't like this idea, because this means GENERIC kernel has libiconv.ko.

I think there is a difficulty problem to MFC into RELENG_4.
Since DYNAMICROOT is unavailable with RELENG_4, mount_cd9660
will not work w/o /usr.
Maybe some knobs should be made to switch dynamic/static linking
mount_cd9660/mount_msdosfs/mount_ntfs, and default is statically linked.

A patch for RELENG_4 is here:
(fjoe's fix should be feeded back, but not yet.)
