I need some help with UTF-8 on FreeBSD 5.2.1.

My primary goal is to use filenames with none ASCII-characters like
german umlauts or kyrillic-characters.
I have installed the utf8local port, set the environment variable
"LC_CTYPE=de_DE.UTF-8" in ~/.login for each user (including root) and
use the sysconsolefont "iso15-8x16".
This works fine for german umlauts when using the console only. But I
get problems when using somthing like samba or rox-filer. I think they
use libiconv, because using iconve to encode none-ASCII-characters from
ISO_8859-15 to UTF-8 on the console I get the same glibberish as using
samba (with a samba client like xsmbrows or windows) or konqueror or
rox-filer... I don't know if it is problem with the font I use (I did
not find a UTF-8 consolefont), the utf8local port or with libiconv. I
have googled the web, searched the mailinglists, looked in to the
Handbook and did not find a solution.

I would realy appreciate your help.
