Besides that, the configure patch did something else than the
aclocal.m4 patch.

That was the idea. Maybe check for both functions, use one of them
if both are available (probably the lib* one, to preserve compati-
bility with current Lynx behaviour), otherwise the one available.

FWIW, MirOS uses Citrus iconv (but that's about all we use from
said project...)

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.   -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
