FWIW I installed the HEAD revision of the validator on a solaris
machine, and libiconv was there in /usr/local/lib. We exclusively use
gcc, as opposed to Sun's cc, so make of that what you will. All I
needed to do to the Text::Iconv Makefile.pl was add '-liconv' to the

All of the SP package built cleanly with gcc under Solaris too.
