The Makefile tweak NO_ICONV is meant to allow Git to be built without
iconv in case iconv is not installed or is otherwise dysfunctional.
However, NO_ICONV's disabling of iconv is incomplete and can incorrectly
allow "-liconv" to slip into the linker flags when NEEDS_LIBICONV is
defined, which breaks the build when iconv is not installed.

On some platforms, iconv lives directly in libc, whereas, on others it
resides in libiconv. For the latter case, NEEDS_LIBICONV instructs the
Makefile to add "-liconv" to the linker flags. config.mak.uname
automatically defines NEEDS_LIBICONV for platforms which require it.
The adding of "-liconv" is done unconditionally, despite NO_ICONV.

Work around this problem by making NO_ICONV take precedence over
NEEDS_LIBICONV.
