Dead keys on Toshiba laptop - 4.8-STABLE - XFree 4.3

I've recently installed FreeBSD on my laptop, fetched the kernel sources
to upgrade from 4.8-RELEASE to 4.8-STABLE, and now i'm trying to make
these dead-keys working under XFree :)
Well, it doesn't work at all. 8 bits caracters are perfectly supported
by the terminal (aterm), since i can see them if i switch to a french
keyboard mapping. Usually i use a dvorak keyboard mapping.
Although i've used xmodmap to set up Mode_switch or Multi_key keys, i
still can't get dead-keys working.
Here is my XF86Config file:
option "xkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "dvorak"
Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
For example, i've checked the keycode of the right alt key with xev, and
bound it to Multi_key, but without any success. Or bounding a
'dead_grave dead_circumflex' to another key didn't work either.
That's weird, it's the first time i can't make these dead-keys working.
Could it be a laptop issue? (Toshiba Satellite 3000).
Thanks in advance,
L'amour... Il y a ceux qui en parlent et ceux qui le font.
A partir de quoi il m'apparait urgent de me taire.
