[SciPy-user] Unable to build SciPy on OS X 10.5.7

The problem is you have a MacPorts install of libiconv which is  
different from the system iconv in /usr/lib, and evidently linker is  
preferring the MacPorts one over the system one.

You could try 'unset DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH' before you build to make it  
ignore MacPorts' version.
