When you are sitting on an xterm in machine A and you ssh into FreeBSD
system B, it's the local client's responsibility to set a proper locale
and internationalization environment for *displaying* stuff and its
FreeBSD's responsibility for letting you type French if your FreeBSD
locale is French too.
Setting the console keyboard map with kbdcontrol on a remote FreeBSD
system cannot affect your local xterm window.
