up to now the samples and programs that linked against libxerces-c had
to link against libiconv.

Could you please try follwing patch against the current port
(/usr/ports/textproc/xerces-c2/) which should change this
behavior and also link libxerces-c against libiconv:


If it works for you  I would appreciate feedback to get this patch

Many thanks.
