Maybe I found a solution.

My downloaded version IS linked against libiconv, since it is simply installed as a subdirectory of subversion. BUT
there has to be set an environment variable APR_ICONV_PATH to point to this directory to get everything in touch. This
under Windows NT.
On my Windows XP PC I have also installed TortoiseSVN which, same as for you, works like a charm. But the commandline
tools all failed for international characters. The environment variable APOR_ICONV_PATH is also set on this PC, but
points to the installation of TortoiseSVN. I assumed, this is the reason, why Tortoise works well and svn not.
I modified the variable to point to my installed subversion directory/iconv and, *wow*, now I'm able to work
on files with these funny characters in it with the commandline tools.

As described above: The trick is to set APR_ICONV_PATH to the correct path. TortoiseSVN-iconv and Subversion-iconv - installation
seem to be incompatible, at least on my station.
