This should get you started:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.keyboard">
      <merge key="input.xkb.layout" type="string">gb</merge>

Change the `gb' in the example to your local keymap name, save the file
as /usr/local/etc/hal/fdi/policy/x11-input.fdi and restart hald.
