On a machine here (Windows), I have been able to reproduce this problem
quite easily:
C:\Documents and Settings\david\test\svn\trunk>echo %APR_ICONV_PATH%
C:\Subversion\iconv

C:\Documents and Settings\david\test\svn\trunk>svn rm codé.c
svn: Safe data:
"cod"
... was followed by non-ascii byte 233.
Non-ascii character detected (see above), and unable to convert to/from
UTF-8
C:\Documents and Settings\david\test\svn\trunk>dir
  Le volume dans le lecteur C s'appelle Disque local
  Le numéro de série du volume est D8CE-1795

  Répertoire de C:\Documents and Settings\david\test\svn\trunk

27/09/2004 17:10 <DIR> .
27/09/2004 17:10 <DIR> ..
27/09/2004 17:04 275 codé.c

The problem seems to be that Windows doesn't (adequately) set the
codepage for the environment, or Subversion isn't taking account of what
Windows sets. Can I force a local filesystem encoding for svn?

Cheers,
Dave.
