Yes, this works with default g++ on Snow Leopard (4.2.1).
It does indeed fail with the compiler I use for nightly testing (/opt/local/bin/g++-mp-4.4). This compiler generates a different symbol that the installed compiler.
[macsierra02:~] kbelco% /opt/local/bin/g++-mp-4.4 foo.cpp
"_libiconv_open", referenced from:
_main in ccOff4HW.o
Notice with the default installed compiler the symbol name changes.
[macsierra02:~] kbelco% which g++
[macsierra02:~] kbelco% g++ --version
i686-apple-darwin10-g++-4.2.1 (GCC) 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5659)
[macsierra02:~] kbelco% g++ foo.cpp
"_iconv_open", referenced from:
_main in cc2067qf.o
I'm not sure why the symbol is mangled to a different name with our compiler. It seems that our version of the compiler is incorrectly installed or at least not properly configured to build / link against iconv.
