Put these lines in /usr/local/etc/smb.conf:
        dos charset = cp850
        unix charset = ISO8859-1

However, transferred files from Windows to the FreeBSD machine,
which were displayed wrong from the FreeBSD side, but right from
Windows, will now be displayed wrong from both sides.

I don't know if you have such files, and I don't know if
there is an easier fix than just transferring the files again.
