"locale -a" just lists all available locales. What is the locale
actually set to on the FreeBSD machine? What about on the Linux machine?

You need to set LANG to a value that is correct for your terminal.
For example on my Mac OS X machine, whose terminal I have configured
to expect UTF-8 data, I have set LANG to "en_US.UTF-8".
