I reproduced this with iconv 1.8 & 1.7.
Tried the packages and compiling iconv myself. The outcome was identical.

./configure --with-zlib --with-gd --with-jpeg --with-png --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-curl --with-gdbm --with-xmlrpc --with-dom --with-dom-xslt --with-expat --with
-iconv=/usr/local/libiconv/ --with-iconv-dir=/usr/local/libiconv/


configure: error: Please specify the install prefix of iconv with --with-iconv=<DIR>

1) What option did you specify at the libiconv's configure script?

2) Please check whether another iconv library such as BSD iconv is installed somewhere else. When two different iconv implementations are installed, configure may fail.

3) Try the best available version, 4.3.0.

1. ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/libiconv

2. Not the case; always uninstalled previous versions before I tried a new one.

3. Works; however I have other problems with 4.3.0 hence me trying 4.2.3

As we don't support older versions anymore, I yet think the best solution is to use 4.3.0.

Then, what's wrong with the latest version?

See bug #22076 & #22077

O.k. we'll take a look into the other problems.

Now closing this report... (fixed in later versions)
