Linux probably uses iconv.

The difference between those two is, libiconv (installed as libgiconv)
has support for Unicode.

If you install libxml2 via ports, it will automagically install libiconv.

You can either patch gnustep-base's configure to search for -lgiconv or
also install 'iconv' - libiconv and libgiconv work fine side-by-side,
though I personally prefer to "patch" configure.
