Block Chars in man pages after completing LFS

After completing my lfs build, I'm seeing some block characters in
some man pages.

For example, for 'man udev', towards the bottom of the first page, I
see a # sign between 2 block characters (squares). I presume these
should be quotes.

I set LANG to en_US.iso88591 in step 7.9. I've since tried setting
'export LANG=' to both en_US and en_US.utf8 within a bash shell, but
still see the block chars.

Any ideas?
