TSVN uses a patched version of apr-iconv, which doesn't use
APR_ICONV_PATH. The reason for this is that apr-iconv links against a
c-runtime lib, and on Windows there are several of those (each VS.NET
version has its own newer version). And using APR_ICONV_PATH just causes
troubles: any app that gets installed will overwrite the path, and then
TSVN would have to use those other iconv modules. Or other apps would
have to use the ones TSVN installed. Both options can cause problems
with missing or incompatible c-runtimes (especially if you don't install
the runtimes in the WINDOWS or SYSTEM32 folder, which e.g. for the 7.1
version you should not do according to MS).

That's why I don't think it's a problem on the client side.
