There have been serious changes in how xorg detects input (see ports/UPDATING
20090123). It now relies on hald to provide keyboard and mouse configuration.
For us keyboard layout it's as simple as starting dbus and hald
(dbus_enable="YES" hald_enable="YES") for localization you need something like
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.keyboard">
<merge key="input.xkb.layout" type="string">de</merge>
Ugly, isn't it. Of course you want to change "de" to whatever your layout is
