Since the error message is about native encoding (US-ASCII here,
due to the LC_ALL=C) to UTF-8, it concerns a file that is in the
repository with a non-ASCII filename (internal encoding is UTF-8).

A solution might be to retrieve the computed LC_CTYPE with the
"locale" command, then before executing svn, do the following:

_ Unset LC_ALL
_ Set LC_CTYPE to the locale determined above.
_ Set every other LC_* and LANG environment variables to "C".
