I would have done that, but Solaris 8 already HAS something called
"iconv".  There is an iconv.h, and libc has functions "iconv",
"iconv_open", "iconv_close", and there's a support directory

Are you saying that I need to get a libiconv that is something
different than this?

Besides, I don't CARE about character set conversions.  If "configure"
didn't think I had proper iconv support, why doesn't Samba just silently
skip doing character conversions?  Can I run configure with
--without-libiconv to get Samba to be quiet?
