How would I go about doing or ensuring this? I see that the apr-util
has a -liconv in the SVN_APRUTIL_EXPORT_LIBS noted in the config.log file.

I didn't find libiconv on my system, so I just built and installed it
(to /usr/local). I cleaned up my subversion build, reconfigured it,
rebuilt and didn't get any different results.

Thanks much,
