What happens if you do "ldd /usr/local/bin/svnadmin"? I'm wondering why
the dynamic linker can't seem to find libiconv.so*.

Possible reasons: /usr/local/lib isn't in the dynamic library search
path (unlikely, since this is set by default), and the system was
obviously able to find libaprutil*, which was there.

About the only thing I can think off off-hand is to ask your sysadmin to
run "ldconfig -R" as the superuser to refresh the dynamic library cache.
Not sure if this will help you or not.

Good luck!


PS. This is *very* off-topic, but there have been a *lot* of bugfixes
since FreeBSD 4.6...it's almost two and a half years old. Also 4.6 had
some, er, fairly serious problems, which is why there was a 4.6.2
release shortly thereafter.
