Could you show to me (and also to other people) a configure.ac example how to
to use it? Yes I just need to use only iconv() library and ICONV_CONST macro
in C source code which is provided by autoconf macro AM_ICONV.

I know. But all projects started doing it due to above unfixed bug in
autoreconf/autopoint/gettext and it started to be de-facto start way how to
workaround above bug. And I'm just following this way.
