That would even happen if you could deliver the *.so files with
Subclipse. I reported this years ago here and on the apr mailing list, I
even sent a patch to address the issue (guess what happened). I had to
patch the apr-iconv file to change the way it locates the *.so files for
TSVN to avoid the issues.
Because: depending on the compiler version (the version of the c-runtime
to be exact) you build apr-iconv, you get crashes even if you have the
correct version of apr-iconv. For example, if your app is built with
VS2005 (which uses c-runtime v8) but some other app installed apr-iconv
(the same version you're using) built with VC6 (which uses the c-runtime
v6), you get crashes too.

The good thing is, with the patch for the utf.c file in Subversion, I
don't need apr-iconv at all anymore.
