Things should work now, but be aware that to get the charset conversion
to actually work, you have to pick up HEAD of apr-iconv; then, once you
build Subversion, you have to set the environment variable
APR_ICONV_PATH to the directory where apr-iconv's charset conversion
modules are. That will usually be

    <path to svn sources>\apr-iconv\LibR\iconv

Or change the LibR to LibD, if you're building in debug mode.

Oh, won't we have fun with the Windows installer for 0.18...
