It's probably expecting that it can do something put
extern int libiconv_close();
in a source file and then just link it. That doesn't necessarily work
on Windows. You may have to mark the declaration with declspec(dllimport);.
The function should be auto-imported automatically but maybe there is
a warning showing up or something which is confusing autoconf.
