PHP 5, OS X, fink and iconv

If you want to get the iconv extension properly running with PHP 5 and fink on OS X, you need the following configure option

and then it should work.

Hope that helps others, too.

Yes, that helped a lot :)

Kind of confusing…

In the spirit of, it sounds like you should open a bug to add this to config.m4 at

And probably file a second bug for the documentation to mention this for configuring on OSX.
