I've been having graphical browsers display squares
with hex characters in them rather than characters in
Chinese etc. alphabets...what do I have to do to have
all the characters available to display?...is it a browser
or OS deficiency?

Some fonts are not installed that provide these characters. I don't
know how BSD handles that, but on other distributions these are
organized in packages like xfonts-*.

You need to install additional fonts to cover all characters.

Personally, I just install noto-2.0 (from x11-fonts/noto) because
it has near universal coverage, but there are numerous other fonts
in the FreeBSD port collection that provide some character ranges,
such as Chinese, if you're picky.

I see you grepped for lower case "font".

Those are mostly legacy bitmapped fonts that aren't really used by
applications written in this century. Most likely you also have
dejavu installed, which then serves as the default TrueType font,
but only covers European languages in the Latin and related alphabets.

Anyway, Noto will cover the rest.

noto-2.0 Google Noto Fonts family (meta port)
noto-basic-2.0_1 Google Noto Fonts family (Basic)
noto-emoji-2.034 Google Noto Fonts family (Emoji)
noto-extra-2.0 Google Noto Fonts family (Extra)
noto-hk-2.002 Google Noto Fonts family (Traditional Chinese Hong Kong)
noto-jp-2.002 Google Noto Fonts family (Japanese)
