 With a bit of hackery I've managed to reduce the bloat from `AM_ICONV`, so
 let's try going with that.

 The only thing we were doing which `AM_ICONV` doesn't have something
 equivalent to is adding `-L/sw/lib` to `ICONV_LDFLAGS` if Fink is
 detected, but it sounds like that probably doesn't actually work nowadays
 anyway (presumably it did back in 2006 when that special case was added).

 So this should be fixed on git master by
 043d0a514ef261d8ab897ce6a4ac78aa381c5b86.  I'm not sure if the macOS CI
 build needs adjusting to benefit from this change (that uses homebrew, and
 it looks like it currently selects the system iconv).

 Marking for backporting to 1.4.x once we've checked portability.
