You need to set LANG to something reasonable, such as "en_US.utf8" or
whatever the locale is called on your system. It apparently doesn't
think "en_US" is a valid value on your system. See the contents of /
usr/share/locale for ideas.

You could try "svnadmin dump"ing the repository (you'd have to use
the newer Subversion on the old server to do this), then "svnadmin
load"ing it into a new repository created on the new server with the
older Subversion. I don't know whether the dump format has changed
between these versions of Subversion, but if it's going to work, this
would be the way to do it.
