Windows build problems

I'm thinking that I want to modify libraries/base/configure.ac to
implement this pseudo-code:
<Psedo code: if $WINDOWS <> "YES" or --with-iconv-libraries was specified then>:
<else skip iconv checking with message>
That way the GHC binary on Windows doesn't grow a dependency on the
mingw iconv goo that would require followup changes in the rest of the
I have no desire to add mingw iconv support to GHC.
The above approach wouldn't necessarily need the
--with-iconv-libraries alternative, but it seems like the autoconfy
like thing to do. Thoughts?
I can try to come up with something, but my sh/autoconf foo is very
very low. I'd be glad to test a change if somebody could translate my
pseudo code for me that'd be awesome.
I'm not quite sure how to check the --with-iconv-libraries bit via
autoconf just yet.
