It looks like your issue is not reading the data output by svn log,
but rather when svn reads the data that svnmerge has created for the
merge commit log message.
svnmerge appears to think that the encoding of that file needs to be
mac-roman, while svn seems to expect utf-8.
Can you check in your subversion config whether you have the
log-encoding config value specified?

I'd rather setup svnmerge.py to automatically select the right
encoding if possible.
