That is *by design* - your content is served as raw binary information.
Any translation you desire should either be pre-converted to the desired
charset, or you can install the mod_charset_lite (provided iconv was
detected and apr-util configured the apr_xlate_* functions).  Note that
fixing the content with mod_charset_lite will be much more cpu intensive
than to pre-stage your files in the desired presentation format.

That's a *totally* different issue; you should report this as a bug;
generated content (in this case, from inside mod_status.c and mod_info.c
sources) obviously needs to be changed from the native printf charset
into some ascii flavor.  Again, you can configure mod_charset_lite to
transform this content, but that doesn't diminish the fact that they
should be emitting results in a legible charset :)
