Did you enable "unicode support" during the installation?

IMO you build with UTF8 option "on" which I don't know why doesn't work correct in FreeBSD. I had the same problem. After rebuildin with UTF8 "off" works okay.

Also I met such a problem when after installation I tuned my console. I usually use koi8-r encoding so I have to do the following:
# sysinstall
Configure >> Console

Then I have to set

Font - IBM-866
Screenmap - KOI8-R to IBM-866
Ttys - cons25r

If I forget one of these 3 options I get the same picture of MC.
