HIDAPI is a platform independent library that allows applications to
work with USB HID-Class devices.  While it can be used to communicate
with standard HID devices like keyboards, mice, and joysticks, it is
most useful when used with custom (Vendor-Defined) HID devices.

Remove iconv(), iconv_open() and iconv_close() symbols from libiconv.

These were FreeBSD specific aliases for libiconv(), libiconv_open() and
libiconv_close() that are now also provided by libc which complicates
writing configure tests that work correctly when both libc iconv and
libiconv are available.

Also, because the libiconv iconv.h header redefines iconv* to libiconv*
correct use of the header implies that the aliases aren't used.

The following ports needed fixes because there was something wrong with
the way they tried to detect or use iconv:

audio/deadbeef: Remove LIBICONV_PLUG from a source file.  It's a
compile-time option and should not be set in source code.

When linking a library libA with a library libB using libtool, if libB.la
exists, libtool will add all libraries libB.la refers to (dependency_libs
field) to the linker command line and store them in the dependency_libs
field of libA.la.  So everything that subsequently links with libA will also
link to these extra libraries.  This causes too much overlinking.

This commit modifies Mk/Uses/libtool.mk so it empties the dependency_libs
field in .la libraries during staging.  However, because .la libraries have
very limited use when dependency_libs is empty it makes sense to completely
remove them during staging.

So with this commit USES=libtool is modified to remove .la libraries and a
new form (USES=libtool:keepla) is introduced in case they need to be kept
(dependency_libs is still emptied).

- Remove part of a patch that wasn't entirely correct and let the port
  use the WCHAR_T iconv extension instead.
- Add USES=libtool and let libtoolize copy the necessary files instead of
  symlinking them such that they can be patched.
- Add a configure check for libusb_handle_events_completed.
