Thanks for your reply, and sorry for the delay of my response.
The locales are aligned with my terminal. I use LANG=es_ES.ISO8859-15
and mrxrvt as terminal.
Doing a further research I have found a workaround: disable-multibye
in configure. But it is not a zsh fault, as multibyte was enabled in
the previous FreeBSD release (10.3) and worked fine. I think that the
upgrade of ncurses has triggered the issue, but I do not know exactly
how. And I have discovered that other tools are affected also, as mutt
pager: now display the "¡" character as raw code. Both tools (zsh and
mutt) are linked with the same library: ncursesw.so.8.
