Alpha on Win32 without UTF8 conversion

As far as I'm concerned, Subversion Alpha on Win32 won't do encoding
conversions. APR-iconv can't work even theoretically, because none of
the conversion modules are compiled. Even if they were, I don't see how
apr-iconv could work with the table-based encodings -- they never seem
to get loaded -- and support for charset aliases is practially nonexistent.

I tried very hard to put support for using the GNU libiconv into APR,
but the only result was comments to about how ASF doesn't like GPL code,
and that the apr_xlate code got moved around, making my patch worthless.

Anyway. I've had enough of this, and am not going to touch that code
again for some time. My patches are all in the mailing archives, so if
somebody wants to take this up on the APR list and/or work on them,
you're welcome. I have neither time nor energy any more to track and
argue about certain hacks that have been going into the APR code.
