FS#1091 - libiconv-full undefined reference compile-time linking error for x86/_64 using GCC7 Musl

LEDE Trunk using latest commit fbde9ac718409720a937671f3354837223b5db76
Feeds all using latest trunk sources, though that shouldn't affect this
Target is "x86" Generic (also tried x86_64)
Selected GCC 7 for compiler options
.config is attached

Problem discovered when enabling the 'minidlna' package, which has a dependency on 'libiconv-full' - a core LEDE package.

Compilation fails on 'libiconv-full' with undefined reference errors (linking errors) for objects 'aliases_lookup' and 'aliases2_lookup' in "":

Full build log is also attached

Tested with a full default configuration and only options enabled being GCC 7 and a modular option for the libiconv-full package, so that should rule out any external influence.

I did find one other reference to this issue on the LEDE forums a few months ago here: LEDE Forums: compilation fails on libiconv-full

Uh oh, compile log didn't get attached. Here you go.

add -std=gnu89 to package/libs/libiconv-full/Makefile

Adding '-std=gnu89' to the LEDE package Makefile TARGET_CFLAGS results in a successful compilation.
Great answer, harrylwc!

As a note, I submitted a pull request on the LEDE GitHub with this fix:
