So apparently linking succeeds in configure but not at 
the linking stage;-(
Could you do another test?
If you copy above line - from gcc to lz - to the command line 
(verifying it fails equally) and try to move "-liconv" around 
(perhaps in front of -L/opt/local/lib), does it succeed?

That sounds correct.
