In fact, I create a module for vlc, therefore it needs to be linked again
libvlccore. When libvlccore was compiled in certain linux enviroment (I lost
that enviroment), my  module deployed in other system does not need the
libiconv of gnu. Now when I compile libvlccore in a kubuntus enviroment
having libiconv among the contribution, my module needs the libiconv.
When I try to uninstall libiconv, also remove the header iconv.h (or
libiconv.h ?: you wrote that iconv is a mandatory of POSIX then I wonder
whether I remove iconv.h or libiconv.h) in the /usr/include, then I can no
longer compile libvlccore.
Would you please show me in detail how to compile libvlccore using the iconv
provided by the system as default?
Many thanks
