Me neither: I found the IBM z/OS C runtime last spec [1] that is the one
for TPF, and it says iconv() has no const: it's strange curl currently
has no problem on this platform since this kind of incompatible pointer
conversion should be flagged [2]: maybe TPF gets warnings too?

This would also have the advantage to avoid needlessly overloading the
configure script.
In all cases, the attention of the TPF curl maintainer should be raised.

I'll be on the road since tomorrow for 10 days with limited internet
access: maybe someone can "take the baby" in the meantime, or I'll do it
when back.
In all cases, I do not master the Travis CI thing (step 2) and I would
prefer the change is done by someone who does.
