Why not try to compile R-patched, aka 2.9.2 RC?
It works for me on Mac OS X, but then 2.9.1 did too?

But is libiconv? It is the C function that it is not finding, not the
executable. (It might be part of Xcode: both my Macs have Xcode 3.1.2
on, so I can't tell.) E.g.
tystie% otool -L ~/R/R-patched/lib/i386/libR.dylib | grep iconv
/usr/lib/libiconv.2.dylib (compatibility version 7.0.0, current version 7.0.0)
