Slackware 14.1 is slackware-current (since 2013-11). I just tried to make libiconv on a clean slackware 14.1 install and get the same error executing make:

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DEXEEXT=\"\" -I. -I.. -I../lib -I../intl -DDEPENDS_ON_LIBICONV=1 -DDEPENDS_ON_LIBINTL=1 -g -O2 -c progname.c
In file included from progname.c:26:0:
./stdio.h:1010:1: error: 'gets' undeclared here (not in a function)
 _GL_WARN_ON_USE (gets, "gets is a security hole - use fgets instead");

      Is there any solution other than changing distro? Would it be possible to
      implement a --without-iconv or --without-libiconv option?
      Thanks for your patience
