Samba 3.0.0 support for iconv on FreeBSD (at least 4.6.2)

I have added code to to properly detect the use of 
iconv-2.0.3 which comes from the ports collection as well as GNU libiconv.

I have not tested the GNU libiconv detection thoroughly though.

Also, for iconv-2.0.3, you will need to modify 
/usr/local/share/iconv/charset.aliases to support the charset names that 
Samba wants to use. ASCII needs to be added to the one called us-ascii (I 
think) and UCS-2LE needs to be added to ucs-2-internal, I think.

Hope this helps. 

I have tested the chanes on RedHat 9.0 as well, and they are currently in 
CVS only.
