character encoding on import

I'm trying to import a project for the first time into subversion,
the project is 2.5gb and has thousands of files. Some of the file
names in the project contain non utf-8 characters. I'm getting errors
when I try to import such as the following:

svn: Valid UTF-8 data
(hex: 72 6f 6d 61 6e 20 26 20 6a)
followed by invalid UTF-8 sequence
(hex: 9a 72 6e 20)

The system is RHEL 4, is there any way to either, convert all
filenames to valid utf-8, or make subversion import without errors?
Its taking a very long time to figure out where the invalid filenames
are as its taking a long time to import such a large amount of data
only to have an error crop up and then have to start all over again
once its been fixed.
