mencoder doesn't display some UTF-8 chars, while mplayer does

Description

Summary of the bug:

A subtitle file contains some UTF-8 figures like "❤". Mplayer successfully displays the subtitles. An attempt to hardcode the subtitles with mencoder yields in a failure. With -utf8 mencoder substitutes "❤" to "_". If used with -ass, then a blank square is put instead of "❤".

How to reproduce: try attached subtitles file.

I found that on my system mplayer and mencoder were compiled differently. The latter compilation options didn't include freetype.
