Thank you very much for clarifying this. I would have wished a similar
clear statement in /usr/ports/UPDATING as I am obviously not the only
one who is misinterpreting the base iconv role.
But may be I am a bit too focused on migrating as I have just
recently finish the necessary migration to databases/db5. And of course
from time to time I have had some trouble in the past with broken ports
dependencies worrying it might be the same with iconv :-).
