It seems that ghc is looking in the wrong directory for libiconv. By specifying --extra-lib-dirs=/usr/lib compilation works.

The MacOS Version is 10.8.2

Is there something different about your compilation environment? Are you using a development package manager (like macports?) /usr/lib is the normal location for libiconv, and on my test systems it is found.

Can you provide a link to the project so I can reproduce this?
