The problem is really with apr-util. Solaris has iconv_open in libc, so
even when you specify --with-iconv=/somewhere/else, libc satisfies the
linking requirements for iconv, and GNU iconv is removed. This causes
APR_LOCALE_CHARSET to not function as advertised when called in
libsvn_subr/utf.c. I don't yet know (a) how to get Solaris iconv to
function properly here, or (b) how to force apr-util to use GNU iconv
when libc contains similarly named iconv functions.

At any rate, this needs to be addressed with the Apache team, as noted
in the referenced bug (2157), as it has very little to do with Subversion.
