I'm simply applying a small patch (already sent to the list, this is a
recurring issue ;) that makes apr iconv first look into a subfolder iconv
that is in the same dir as the libapriconv.dll.

I'm doing this for years now and I have never seen any problems with it
having svn, tsvn and subcommander on my system.

I think Stefan used a similar patch in the past. I don't know why he
changed it.

Since subcommander/submerge is using the same iconv based code on
Unix/Windows i'm not in favour of removing apr-iconv on Windows.

Subcommander 1.2.2 - http://subcommander.tigris.org
a cross platform Win32/Unix/MacOSX subversion GUI client & diff/merge tool.
