Subversion will output whatever you have set as your system encoding.
But if your console window isn't using a font that can represent all the
characters in that encoding, then  they won't be printed correctly. This
has nothing to do with Subversion but with how your console is set up.

By the way, the default console font (Consolas) is quite limited and
don't even contain the whole range of accented latin characters. Try
using Lucida Console instead.

There is, in fact, but not in Subversion; you have to fiddle with
Windows' regional settings.

LANG and LC_* environment variables are pertinent to Unix, not Windows.
