I use mc -sd in mrxvt with my non-locales box (LANG=C).

-s tells mc not to waste time with expensive line-drawing commands.  It
looks the same to me.

Here's my .mrxvtrc

Mrxvt.xft:	true
Mrxvt.xftAntialias:	true
Mrxvt.xftAutoHint:	true
#Mrxvt.xftFont:		bitstream vera sans mono
Mrxvt.xftFont:		dejavu sans mono
Mrxvt.xftWeight:	medium
Mrxvt.xftWidth:		normal
Mrxvt.xftSize:		12
Mrxvt.background:	#F6E7CF
Mrxvt.showMenu:		true

Perhaps it depends on what font you're using, if it contains the
necessary chars.
