FreeBSD 5.3-BETA6 i386
$ ls -l /usr/share/nls/en_US.US-ASCII
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 1 Sep 27 20:59 /usr/share/nls/en_US.US-ASCII -> C

Hrm, that's odd. The "distrib-dirs" target in src/src/Makefile which
is run as the first step of installworld should have taken care of
creating /usr/share/nls/C, at least I wasn't able to reproduce any
problem here. The only way I could have made it break is to have
/usr/share/nls/C symlinked to some nonexistent filename. But you say
there was no 'C' entry at all...
Anyway, a complete "installworld" output would help narrow this problem
down. If not, there's nothing to discuss in this thread anymore.
