[freetds] Charset issues...

How do I troubleshoot charset issues? I have to match a string, but the string is coming across with a '?' rather than the character it should be.
Where does freetds determine the charset?
I understand MS SQL Server produces data in a charset.... what happens when it comes via freedts? When I look it up in the mysql database there is a mismatch.

Little Man Inc. => 1112
name not found: Miller?s Hobbies, Inc. at estes.pl line 100.
Where did that '?' come from?
tsql shell reports:
locale is "C"
locale charset is "ANSI_X3.4-1968"
Can I get a clue? I use Gentoo distro, if that helps.
