Where i'm a little less sure is with iconv... If I build libxml with
iconv, how does the GPL (the iconv license) affect my usage of
libxml2? Because I link to libxml2 (which in turn links to iconv) is
my app then subjected to the GPL? Do I then have to meet this portion
of hte GPL:

iconv comes with the glibc, which is licensed under LGPL, not GPL.


The concrete requirements for LGPL compliance should be directly
addressed in the body of the LGPL licenses document. I believe you need
to include a copy in both the source tree and any system documentation.

Questions about LGPL/GPL compliance should be sent to licensing fsf org,
but please do read their FAQ first, because Dave Turner is just one guy
struggling under a flood of queries.

I suspect that further discussion of this topic should probably be
handled in email with FSF, rather than here on the Gnome XML list.
