I have a similar problem -

When I run "dict" in eshell, the phonetic characters (IPA symbols)
don't display correctly. Here is the output -

~ $ dict exemple
1 definition found

>From French-English Freedict dictionary [fd-fra-eng]:

  exemple [ɛgzãpl]

It also fails when run in xterm or gnome-terminal BUT it does display
correctly in uxterm (Xterm Unicode). Also, I can see the IPA character
set with the command "xfd -fn -etl-*-*-*". I am running Emacs 21.2.1
on Debian/GNU Linux testing distribution.

C-u C-x = reports the following on the first character after "exemple [" -

  character: É (04311, 2249, 0x8c9)
    charset: latin-iso8859-1
             (Right-Hand Part of Latin Alphabet 1 (ISO/IEC 8859-1): ISO-IR-100)
 code point: 73
     syntax: word
   category: l:Latin  
buffer code: 0x81 0xC9
  file code: not encodable by coding system nil
       font: -Adobe-Courier-Medium-R-Normal--17-120-100-100-M-100-ISO8859-1

and on the second character after "exemple [" -

  character: › (0233, 155, 0x9b)
    charset: eight-bit-control (8-bit control code (0x80..0x9F))
 code point: 155
     syntax: whitespace
buffer code: 0x9B
  file code: not encodable by coding system nil
       font: -Adobe-Courier-Medium-R-Normal--17-120-100-100-M-100-ISO8859-1g

I have tried creating a fontset, but the documentation wasn't very
clear to me. Could any give me examples or suggestions?
