   Ok guys, finally someone from www.freebsdforums.org give a track
about this problem, before he say that he was having the same problem
with his keyboard and xorg 6.8.2 on freebsd 5.4, and he test the ports
and packages, but before he build a custom kernel, and the keyboard
dosent answer, them he test with the GENERIC kernel and the keyboard
start working.

  Them this weekend i update my system to the lastest RELENG_5_4,
buildworld + buildkernel(custom), xorg was already install form ports,
and my keyboard wasnt answer, them i start from GENERIC and found that
my keyboard start to work, them i start disabling kernel options, i
build about 10 different kernels, and found that some options from
sysco driver SC, was breaking the comunication between xorg and my
kbd, this two:

options      SC_ALT_MOUSE_IMAGE
options      MAXCONS=8

   This is the only options i disable from my custom kernel, right now
is working, i hope maybe on Freebsd 6 this bug or i dont know how to
call this will be fix.

    Problem solve.
    OS: Freebsd 5.4-p6
    Kernel: Custom
    X: xorg 6.8.2 -->ports
    kbd: ps/2 standard 104 keys
    mouse: belking USB
    Browser: firefox 1.0.6 -->ports 
    WM: xfce4 -->ports.
