My local svn process received the "Can't recode" error message from the
remote svnserve via network when trying to commit changed files.

Ok, this statement caused my to try to run the *server* process in a locale
different from C - and guess what, it worked.

Now maybe someone could clarify, am I officially too stupid to configure
subversion, or is it really nowhere written that the subversion server
process will need to transcode some strings into its own locale / encoding
for some reason and thus needs to use a local enconding which can represent
all characters of all encodings used by any clients accessing this server?

Maybe for some this is logically, for me it wasn't... My svnserve is running
on a headless pure server system which exclusively used the standard C
locale so far.

My server process (svnserve) now runs with LANG=de_DE.utf8@euro and seems to
be happy so far... :-/

However, as a sidenote: libiconv is neither a build dependancy of Debian's
subversion package nor of Debian's Apache2 package, but charset conversion
still does work. /usr/bin/svn and friends also (obviously) do not link
against any libiconv*.

Anyway, sorry for wasting your time, thanks a lot for your help :-))) and I
really hope it works reliably now. :-)
