Maybe relevant - here some notes I took while setting up Sarge.
(All's fine with my mutt.)

1) Add to /etc/locale.gen:
   en_NZ.UTF-8 UTF-8
2) Run /usr/sbin/locale-gen
3) Add LANG=en_NZ.UTF-8 to /etc/environment
4) apt-get install console-terminus
5) vi /etc/console-tools/config

Switch to the unicode console font with:
  consolechars -f ter-v16b.psf

Or back to Debian's default:
  consolechars -f lat0-sun16

Hope that's some help...
