OpenSolaris vs. Solaris

I have some software that does some translation from UTF-8. In Solaris the product has always run fine, but in OpenSolaris I see an error: someprogram: fata: relocation error: file someprogram: symbol_iconv_open: referenced symbol not found

Now, from what I have found out is that Solaris used a system call called: _iconv_open
and most Linux use a similar system call in libc called: iconv_open

But apparently there is a slight difference between Solaris and OpenSolaris, which causes this issue.

Does any have ANY knowledge of this? Somewhere I can look to confirm this hypothesis?
