[PATCH] link libgcj directly to libiconv to resolve symbols

   Currently the build of the libgcj shared library in libjava omits a direct linkage against the
libiconv shared library to resolve the undefined _libiconv, _libiconv_close and _libiconv_open
symbols in libgcj. My understanding of shared library best practices is that shared libraries
should always be linked directly to the those shared libraries required to resolve their undefined
symbols rather than postponing this linkage until when the shared library is used (as is currently
done in libjava/libgcj.spec.in).
   The attached patch achieves this by removing the @LIBMATHSPEC@ from *lib: in libjava/libgcj.spec.in
and moving it as $(LDLIBICONV) onto libgcj_la_LDFLAGS in libjava/Makefile.am and libjava/Makefile.in. 
Bootstrap and regression tested on x86_64-apple-darwin12 for gcc trunk and gcc-4_8-branch.
Okay for gcc trunk and gcc-4_8-branch?
