another iconv question

I am trying to help my friend set up his rsync with iconv. Presently
it works fine but re-copies every file with an umlaute in the
filename. I saw a recent post about this and the fix but...
he ran "locale" ( both source and dest are on same machine) and is
running on a German-Swiss locale
xserve-backup-02:/Volumes/Backup RAID 8TB teleclub$ locale
we tried adding option iconv=C and iconv=C,C but no luck - it still
re-copies very file with an umlaute.
I checked "iconv --list" on my Mac and see no "C" listed. I am not
sure if "C" is correct either.
The correct file name would be "Action des Monats für vertonung.mov"
and not "Action des Monats f\#303\#274r vertonung.mov"
but the log shows it not translated:
/Volumes/SAN_Video/Final Cut Pro Documents/Capture Scratch/Action des
Monats/! Render/Action des Monats f\#303\#274r vertonung.mov
32768 0% 344.09kB/s 0:54:11
42205184 3% 40.25MB/s 0:00:26
Though the actual file name gets copied correctly to dest, obviously
the mapping (if that is what it is called) is different causing rsync
to update the file every time.
Any thoughts or direction appreciated. Thanks, Rob D
