From the rxvt website:
rxvt is a colour vt102 terminal emulator intended as an xterm(1) replacement for users who do not require features such as Tektronix 4014 emulation and toolkit-style configurability. As a result, rxvt uses much less swap space.

Therefore, rxvt is intended for X.

As you are running it, it does not support the line drawing character sets.
