Thanks for the support, Eric. 

It appears to be dying because the external "iconv" library cannot be
found. According to the FreeBSD package database, I have "libiconv-1.11"
installed. Do I need a newer version? 

If so, it would be nice to get a diagnostic message more directly to
that effect when the process fails.
