This doesn't answer your question but might solve your problem: this
symptom occurs for a number of people who have installed teTeX using the
i-installer distribution.  One of the optional packages is `wmf + iconv
support" which installs an incompatible version of libiconv in
/usr/local/lib.  Removing this works for us.
