Hello!

today I tried to install the validator on a Mac OS X 10.1 box and I 
wanted to share my experiences.

onsgml comiled ok from source.

Perl 5.8 and the modules needed for validator were installed 
successfully.

There is just one problem with the iconv module. I installed the lib 
from source (got the tarball from http://www.gnu.org/software/libiconv/ 
and compiled it without problems). After the installation the make and 
make install process for Text::Iconv worked just fine.

But the check script exits and writes the following error message in 
the log file:
dyld: perl Undefined symbols:
_libiconv
_libiconv_close
_libiconv_open

I am just a web developer and I don't know the reason for this error 
message or how I can fix the problem. Is there a solution to this?

Here is the list of installed files for perl iconv:
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/darwin/auto/Text/Iconv
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/darwin/auto/Text/Iconv/.packlist
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/darwin/auto/Text/Iconv/autosplit.ix

/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/darwin/auto/Text/Iconv/Iconv.bundle

Here is the list of installed files for iconv:
