Since this system has been updated automatically by urpmi, I expect
apr-util to be installed and have the same version as to apr.

I think iconv has been integrated to the GNU C library a long time ago:
http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/html_node/glibc-iconv-Implementation.html

Maybe some errors have been introduced in Mandrake's apr package, maybe
even subversion or one of its dependencies.

To clear things up:

* I understand apr and apr-util have been installed as RPM's. Are these
the official RPMs from Mandrake?

* I understand subversion has been installed as an RPM from:
http://mirror.brain.org/linux/breser/mandrake/i586/10.0/
Is that correct?

* Have you tried updating all the Mandrake packages? Maybe there's a bug
in some depedency such as the GNU C library / iconv implementation.

Finally, when was this reposiroty created? With which version of Subversion?

Dimitri
