That would appear to be a bug: the layout should be equivalent to
/usr/share/nls/C 

Hmmm... This has already been reported.  See
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=ports/57488

Until the fix gets committed, the self referring link will be
recreated any time you install or update a port under /usr/local that
causes mtree(8) to be run.  Interestingly the same problem does not
occur in /usr/X11R6/share/nls/C

        Cheers,
