Thank you for this input, I am a step further now. But it still does not work:
After some googling I found out:

1. you need to start the console with CMD /U to enable unicode
2. The code page for UTF-8 is 65001.

after I issue
cmd /U
chcp 65001
other applications really use UTF-8 as output encoding, but SVN 1.4.0 does not:

D:\test\>svnlook log -r 3 test
Commit Message mit ?\195?\156mlauten:

There seems to be a duplicate encoding problem; instead of using UTF-8
for the output, all non-ascii characters appear as ?\nnn.
