AW: National characters broke subversion?

From: Hunkel, Manfred <M.Hunkel_at_t-systems.com>

Had the identical problem: File names with funny German umlauts properly checked
in via TortoiseSVN, but all server-side clients (svnlook, in particular) failing on seeing
the first such file name.

Solution:
1. (most important): Make sure that apr/apr-util are linked with libiconv
2. Set locale locale on server machine properly (at least LC_CTYPE).

N.B.: When svnlook is being called via e.g. WebSVN, the environment doesn't necessarily contain an appropriate locale setting, i.e. svnlook will fail despite the availability of libiconv.

It means your client's locale doesn't know how to convert the UTF8
filename in the repository into something readable. Set your locale
correctly.
