I guess I use the corresponding syscons font file as I don't have a
declaration in rc.conf.
You should be able to use vidcontrol(1) to load new sycons fonts.
You can compile in your default syscons(4) font once you get it

For reporting bugs: send-pr(1).
This isn't a bug though, as my UK keyboard works fine on 7.2-RC2
Your problem can probably be fixed by:
# vidcontrol -f 8x16 /usr/share/syscons/fonts/cp850-8x16.fnt
# kbdcontrol -l /usr/share/syscons/keymaps/uk.cp850.kbd
or you could use the iso keymap, I guess.
