i have the same problem with msys/mingw on win xp
the config.log is saying :

configure:21094: result: no
configure:21135: checking for iconv
configure:21163: gcc -o conftest.exe -g -O2 -I/usr/win32/include -I/usr/win32/include/ebml -D_OFF_T_ 
-D_off_t=long -L/mingw/lib -L/usr/win32/lib conftest.c  >&5
C:/DOCUME~1/sspm/LOCALS~1/Temp/ccigbaaa.o(.text+0x31): In function `main':
C:/msys/1.0/home/sspm/vlc-0.8.5/configure:21195: undefined reference to `libiconv_open'
undefined reference to `libiconv'
undefined reference to `libiconv_close'
configure:21166: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:

my libiconv.a is in /usr/win32/lib
in the command line, we can see that this directory is used (option -L) but we don't have the name 
of the library itself (something like -liconv)

how can we do to force that ?
