As far as I can tell, libiconv.so exports their functions with the 
"lib" prefix because glibc contains a libc implementation - and that 
one already exports the standard posix names.
I would be fine with using the GNU version of the library. When I will 
continue to integrate GNU's libio to our libroot.so, I will have a 
deeper look at the situation. Right now, I have iconv building as part 
of libroot.so with our header with no problem here locally.
I would suggest to leave the question as is now, and I will bring it up 
again when I restart working on libroot.so.
