Hi Bert.
Thanks for the bug report.
I'll try to look into this problem in the next few days. My first look
at the installer build file it seems to be set correctly as
"[INSTALLDIR]iconv" and a quick test on my old Win2000Server did set the
correct path (but the notes on the installer end page was wrong).

Is this a fresh install of Subversion or did you upgrade from a previous
version, maybe installed on the default path?
Have you experiences this problem on previous versions of my installers ?
