> When a project wants to only use AM_ICONV and none of the other gettext
autoconf macros

If your package only wants to use iconv() but no support for localized
messages, it should use the gnulib module 'iconv'. This module includes the
config.rpath file.

autoreconf deals with gettext for convenience. It does not know about gnulib

> projects which needs to use AM_ICONV started providing their own
"autogen.sh" script which copies required file config.rpath to current
directory and then run autoreconf.

This is not future-proof: if new files (.m4 files or else) are needed as new
dependencies of iconv.m4, this method will not know about it.
