Better late than never. Here is what i did to "russify" my terminal:

1)  # cat /etc/rc.conf
    font8x8="*cp866*-8x8"         # fonts in cp866
    keymap="ru.*koi8-r*.win"     # keymap in koi8-r
    scrnmap="*koi8-r*2*cp866*"   # convert keymap --> fonts
2) # grep ttyv /etc/ttys
    ttyv0   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         *cons25r *on  secure
    ttyv1   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         *cons25r *on  secure
    ttyv2   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         *cons25r *on  secure
3) # pw usermod -n *user *-L *russian*
    (because in /etc/login.conf already have 'russian|Russian Users
Accounts [...]')

Hope this helps.
