Exactly. So, if you're in this situation, just make sure
- whenever you use GHC, pass it the -L/usr/lib flag
- put --extra-lib-dirs=/usr/lib in ~/.cabal/config
Now Apple's libs will be preferred when linking haskell executables,
solving the libiconv errors while still allowing macports libs to be used.
