That probably won't matter. The characters in that file are
normal 1-byte characters (ISO), not 2-byte ones (UTF-8).
I have built xterm with no special options and can see
% echo $XTERM_LOCALE
% echo $LC_CTYPE
% make -C /usr/ports/x11/xterm showconfig
===> The following configuration options are available for xterm-282:
DABBREV=off: Enable support for dabbrev-expand
DECTERM=off: Enable DECterm Locator support
GNOME=off: GNOME desktop environment support
LUIT=on: Use LUIT for locale convertion from/to UTF-8
PCRE=off: Use Perl Compatible Regular Expressions
WCHAR=on: Enable wide-character support

I assume you have all neccessary _fonts_ installed?
