Did you rm -fr /usr/obj/* before rebuilding world?  "That didn't work"
is too ambiguous.

The build is failing because it claims ICONV_CONST is undefined.

ICONV_CONST is found here:

$ grep -r ICONV_CONST /usr/src/contrib/tcsh /usr/src/bin/csh
/usr/src/contrib/tcsh/ ICONV_CONST
/usr/src/contrib/tcsh/configure:#define ICONV_CONST $am_cv_proto_iconv_arg1
/usr/src/contrib/tcsh/sh.func.c:    ICONV_CONST char *src;
/usr/src/bin/csh/config.h:#define ICONV_CONST const

src/bin/csh/config.h declares it.

The proper include files are only included if HAVE_ICONV is declared,
which it is (in src/bin/csh/Makefile), as you can see from -DHAVE_ICONV.
You might have to end up giving someone access to your box to solve this
