Yes. libiconv now tries to assume a little more of ISO C.

Not so. Solaris lacks a compliant <stdint.h>. On top of that, the cc compiler
has bugs with 'long long' that make the autoconf tests concluded that
'long long' is unusable while 'unsigned long long' appears to be usable.

libiconv 1.13 will deal with this better.

You can work around by
  - downgrading to libiconv-1.11.1, or
  - build with a replacement file, as you did, or
  - just don't build the 'iconv' program, and do "make -k install" to only
    install the library.

Thanks for the report.
