Hi Fabian,

Thanks. I copied the iconv.m4 file to the bootstrap directory. This iconv.m4 was from the libiconv developer version which I also installed  in he monetdb prefix. This seems to work but triggers a lot of other macro errors. Do I need to copy more m4 files? I also still get the AC_MSG_ERROR macro error,
