I always struggle with phpMyAdmin and charsets. It either does a conversion 
when I don't want it or vice versa. So I ususally convert the dump via 
iconv or recode on the console. And I think that newer Mysql server can do 
the conversion automaitcally given the correct CLI arguments and/or infos 
in the dump file (see Mysql docs).
