Subversion converts the log messages to UTF-8 before storing them in the
repository, and back to the local encoding for display. If your log
messages aren't being converted correctly, you can do one of two things:

    * Make sure your locale setting correctly identifies the encoding
      you're using (e.g., in your case it might be
      LC_ALL=es_AR.ISO8859-1); or,
    * Use the --message-encoding option; e.g., --message-encoding=ISO8859-1

Of course, you should also make sure that libiconv is available on your
system. By the way, what system are you using?
