The manual page is reporting

$ head -n 1 mc.1
.\" -*- mode: troff; coding: utf8 -*-

but the official name should be UTF-8

On cygwin we just switched the man system and the new one
man-db-2.6.7-2 is not tolerant anymore, so the man page fails

$ man -d ./mc.1
preprocessor encoding: utf8
page_encoding = utf8
source_encoding = utf8
locale_charset = UTF-8
roff_device (locale) = utf8
roff_encoding = ISO-8859-1
output_encoding = UTF-8
less_charset = utf-8
Terminal width 104
Terminal width 104 not within cat page range [80, 80]
Using 101-character lines
formatted_encoding = UTF-8
