I would suggest you check the /var/db/pkg/libiconv*/+CONTENTS file to
see if it contains any extra dependencies.  The begining of my
libiconv*/+CONTENTS file only contains this:

@name libiconv-1.13.1
@comment ORIGIN:converters/libiconv
@cwd /usr/local
@comment MD5:5c4f3aa5c04f006466355e377b1a2560

There should be no @pkgdep or @comment DEPORIGIN lines in this file.
If you have these in there, then remove them as libiconv has no
