Our applications want to use the syslog to log, but if our log's encoding is utf-8, the log content
became unreadble. It looks like that FreeBSD's syslogd(8) would just filter characters that have their highest bit set
From what I know we do not support utf/8 related things yet. So that
explains thatyou cannot send utf-8 logs towards syslogd. There is work
in progress to make this happen, lets wait for that. Thanks for trying
to make freebsd better...

My proposal, to close request.
UTF-8 looks fine in logs, in case of -8 flag for syslogd specified.
For example, in rc.conf:
Oct 26 11:38:25 srv fetchmail: awakened at ×.M-^BÏ.M-^@ÎÉË, 26
ÏË.M-^B.M-^OÂ.M-^@.M-^O 2010 Ç. 11:38:25
Oct 26 11:38:26 srv fetchmail: sleeping at ×.M-^BÏ.M-^@ÎÉË, 26
ÏË.M-^B.M-^OÂ.M-^@.M-^O 2010 Ç. 11:38:26 for 120 seconds
-8 flag specified:
Oct 26 11:42:27 srv fetchmail: awakened at ×ÔÏÒÎÉË, 26 ÏËÔÑÂÒÑ 2010 Ç.
Oct 26 11:42:27 srv fetchmail: sleeping at ×ÔÏÒÎÉË, 26 ÏËÔÑÂÒÑ 2010 Ç.
11:42:27 for 120 seconds
Best regards, Vadim
Works with -8 flag
