Non ASCII characters in commit message?

Hi all,

Just a quick question, whenever I try to put non pure ascii chars in a
commit message, like characters "", "", "", I get the following error:

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Can't recode string
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: '/local/tmp/subversion/svn-commit.tmp'

Is that because my install is broken (I used libiconv 1.9.2) or
Subversion doesn't handle non pure ASCII chars at all (which I would
find odd)

PS: The system is a Linux Red Hat 7.2, with an inhouse compile of
Berkeley DB 4.2.52, GNU libiconv 1.9.2, httpd 2.0.48 and subversion 0.37

TIA,
Cheers,
Olivier.
