"Can't create a character converter from native encoding to UTF-8" when checking out

From: <Ciaran.Byrne_at_sunlife.com>

I'm getting this message when trying to checkout some files via http://
using either a remote or command-line clientbut can successfully
checkin/out using svn:// both command line client on Solaris 8 and
TortoiseSVN on WinXP. The files were imported using TortoiseSVN with no

My install is on a Solaris 8 machine, with a compiled subversion 1.4.3
(r23084) and a compiled Apache/APR 2.2.4 downloaded from apache.org. A
couple of specific tweaks in oder to get compiles complete were:

./configure --disable-nls

 and I had to modify the Makefile line (adding the -lintl):

SVN_APR_LIBS = /usr/local/apache2/libapr-0.la -lsendfile -lrt -lm -lsocket
-lnsl -lresolv -lpthread -ldl -lintl

in order to get around a linker error.

I'm pretty sure the problem doesn't lie with Subversion compile, as
svnserve works no problem. I've seen lots of similar type problems to this,
but no definitive. I'm currenlty using a locale of en_US.ISO8859-1, but
switching to en_US.UTF-8 didn't seem to help. We don;t have any files with
non-latin characters in them so I'm a bit stumped as to where the issue
really lies

Can anyone see where I'm going wrong here or maybe point me in a different
(hopefully correct) direct?
