Thanks, this should be easy to fix.

You need to have this iconv.m4 file in your aclocal inclusion path.
(-I)  iconv.m4 is provided by the gettext package, you'll need the
development version of that for sure to get this .m4 file.

You can copy the iconv.m4 into the dir where the bootstrap script
resides, or in buildtools/conf.  I'll add some variable so you can add
the system location of the m4 files yourself.
