I'm Brazilian, I just installed FreeBSD 13 stable, when using the console and
trying to use the common shortcuts for ABNT2 keyboards (tried with different
keyboards and different systems and configurations) they don't work.

"Alt GR" + "q" just types "q" and not "/"
"Alt GR" + "w" just types "w" and not "?"
"Alt GR" + "e" just types "e" and not "°"
"Alt GR" + "c" just types "c" and not "₢"

During the installation process the keyboard keymap is not listed as Brazilian
ABNT and Brazilian ABNT2 but Brazilian with and without accent keys. This
doesn't sound common or practical. We have 2 common keymaps here: ABNT and
ABNT2. "Brazilian keymap with accent keys" sounds strange, doesn't sound like
something a brazilian will naturally recognize 'cause we don't use these terms
over here.

I don't know if this is the right channel but I would like these shortcuts to
be functional and the terms to be changed in the installation process.

English isn't my first language so I'm sorry if what I'm saying doesn't sound
right or respectful, but it really made a difference for me and my colleagues.

And if it is possible also to change the rc.conf terms to keymap to
"keymap=abnt" and "keymap=abnt2".

I don't want to sound annoying but I figured it would make a lot of difference
to my college classmates.
