It may very well be a) something specific to 8-current or b) a side-
effect of some other port which I have installed.  The way in which
port dependencies interact is pretty much impossible to analyze.  And
since I only have 8-current installed I can't evaluate it any better.

OBTW the problem disappears for me too when I link against iconv.  I
only see a problem w/o iconv but with i18n support.  It also works
when I turn off both iconv and i18n support, which is the configuration
I'm currently using.

Thanks for pursuing this.
