No, only the first test (linking a test program using iconv functions
without any additional library) failed, the second one (adding -liconv to
the compilation) succeeded.  config.log with autoconf 2.13 is terrible,
since you cannot see the results of the various tests there.

... and the default local-prefix is /usr/local, so
/usr/local/include/iconv.h is found during stage2.  This gets you the
references to the alternative names used by GNU libiconv (libiconv_open
instead of iconv_open), but -liconv still links the vendor library which
only provides the iconv_open form ;-(

Indeed, now you using matching headers and libraries.

No, it only made things worse ;-(  Before, you only needed libiconv for the
java compiler, now everything is linked with libiconv.  I used to add
-I/vol/gnu/include to java-warn as a hack to have it effective for java
only, but now it needs to be pushed up to ALL_CPPFLAGS.

I suppose so, yes.

No, it says you need to use the old assembler.

Certainly not, that's why I had provide the examples:

To bootstrap GCC, you either need to use the Compaq C Compiler:

        % CC=cc srcdir/configure [options] [target]
or you can use a copy of GCC 2.95.3 or higher built on Tru64 UNIX V4.0:

        % CC=gcc -Wa,-oldas srcdir/configure [options] [target]

But you are right, this could use some clarification.  The current version
was useful in the GCC 3.0/3.1 days, when the only existing versions of gcc
were hacked (generally broken) copies of 2.95, or binaries from V4.0
systems.  Now that you have a native V5.1 gcc, this complication doesn't
arise any more for most people.
