This is one reason why I prefer to use the native compilers on IRIX;
perhaps that's also an option for the Solaris build?

If the configure script find libiconv it gets linked in, and I found
no simple option to prevent this. For the IRIX build I use a script
that removes the '-liconv' from the xdvi Makefile after configuring.
