 Fair enough.  OPTION it (default off - who uses iconv with xclock?).
 More work for the maintainer, but that seems like the best choice
 given our current tools.
 It'd be nice if we could have dynamic dependencies (dynamic at port
 build time, that is) for cases like this where the user couldn't
 really care either way about the feature, but removing a dependency
 breaks it.
