FreeBSD + Unicode filenames


Can someone please point me in the right direction regarding handling unicode characters in filenames on freeBSD.

I have an rsync backup script running from a linux server which hosts many files with european accented characters.

The script bombs out on encountering these files, and as i understand it this isn't an rsync issue but presumably one of the filesystem being able to handle filenames containing these characters.

I've read a bit online re unicode terminals, handling unicode text in files, but i really just need to be able to have unicode filenames..

The systems are a mix of 6.2 and 7.0, but a fix under 6.2 would be most helpful..
