I've never used Midnight Commander, but here is my notes on how I got the BBS's to display much better..

cd /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc
wget http://home.earthlink.net/~us5zahns/enl/vga11x19.pcf
xset fp rehash

## need rxvt ##

rxvt -bg black -fg white -fn vga11x19

Maybe that will get you somewhere..
Hope this helps.
