  Wrong. libxslt requires libxml2 but does not require iconv (nor expat).
If iconv is not found at compile time no dependancy to it will be made
(and libxml2/libxslt/xsltproc encoding support will be reduced to
UTF-8/UTF-16/ISO latin 1).
  On most Unix, Iconv is anyway part of the C libray since it's part of
the POSIX standard.
