Does this still pick up /usr/local/include later in the command line,
for the portion of the build that actually needs to include iconf
headers, but in a position after our internal headers have been found first?

I was actually thinking that we should instead work around this by
setting AM_CPPFLAGS somewhere in our Makefile.am files.  That is, when
AM_CPPFLAGS is set, then automake outputs $(AM_CPPFLAGS) $(CPPFLAGS)
when producing compilation rules, such that our internal CPPFLAGS
settings come first in the command line, prior to anything inherited
during configure (including the internal iconv settings).  That is, with
new enough automake, I think this alternative patch solve your BSD
compilation (although other directories need the same treatment),
without needing any configure.ac hacks.

On the other hand, it looks like RHEL 5 only supports automake 1.9.6,
and the automake NEWS doesn't mention AM_CPPFLAGS until 1.10 :(

So even if the approach in my patch solves your issue, I think it's a
non-starter, and something like your patch may be the best we can do.

But I'm still worried that we have to use -I/usr/local/include somewhere
in the command line, which means we would have to modify src/Makefile.am
(and friends) to have:


where GETTEXT_CPPFLAGS is substituted with the difference in
$save_CPPFLAGS and $CPPFLAGS prior to the point where we restore $CPPFLAGS.
