PHP 5, OS X, fink and iconv

If you want to get the iconv extension properly running with PHP 5 and fink on OS X, you need the following configure option

and then it should work.

Hope that helps others, too.

In the spirit of, it sounds like you should open a bug to add this to config.m4 at

And probably file a second bug for the documentation to mention this for configuring on OSX.

Yes, that helped a lot :)

Kind of confusing…
