Support for other iconv implementations

Under AIX 4.3.3, I got various charset modules errors after compiling 3.0beta1
so I installed gnu iconv 1.8 and recompiled. Now I get errors that shr4.a
cannot be found in libiconv.a. Does anyone know how to fix this? Has anyone
gotten 3.0beta to run under AIX 4.3? I've been running Samba under AIX since
1.1x and never had any problems building it until now.

I notice that configure/ in Samba 3.0.0 only supports GNU
libiconv. However, FreeBSD, and perhaps other systems, have support for
iconv natively already.

I am thinking of adding support for iconv on FreeBSD which involves a
slighly differently named include file (biconv.h) and library

Does anyone know if it would be compatible?
