> Is there still something wrong with iconv?

Looks quite normal. But is that the iconv that R is connecting to? You had an error that it couldn't convert latin1 to ASCII and both are on that list....

> I put the header in the <R home>/include. Was that right?

Probably not. I would expect something like /usr/local/include, and maybe a -I option to make sure it was found before the Solaris-supplied one. Does make install (for iconv) not do that for you?

You may need to look into config.log and see exactly what is going wrong when configure fails the test about supported conversions.
