Hmm, this sounds like an error of interpreting things from
subversion's point of view.

One thing you could try is to see whether compiling APR to return
APR_FILEPATH_ENCODING_UTF8 fixes your problem or not.

*IF* UTF8 is the only locale on Macs, APR_FILEPATH_ENCODING_UTF8 seems
like the right value to return, because it's more explicit than
APR_FILEPATH_ENCODING_LOCALE, but then again, I haven't looked to see
how code interacts with these values.
