Thank you, Russ. This works.

This is a hack, but it will get you around the problem.  After configuring and before making, do this:

    sed -i -e "/HAVE_ICONV/d" config.h

I completely removed libiconv and now Snort compiles as expected.

Compiling Snort 3 Build 245 on FreeBSD fails at the make step with the below error:

I reconfigured Snort with --define=ICONV_ACCEPTS_NONCONST_INPUT:BOOL=true, but it didn't help. The same step on CentOS works as expected. Is there a way to move beyond this error?

Thanks (and thanks for the tcmalloc support).
