As per documentation :
Quote
This extension is enabled by default, although it may be disabled by compiling with --without-iconv .

The optional --with-iconv-dir directive is used to specify the location of iconv on the system that PHP is being compiled on, otherwise only the default locations are scanned.
So it is already available and if its not there you can install it yourself..  see itself:
