The keysym is good.

IMO the problem is in the display. How do you see this text in
iso-8859-15 (download and cat test.txt)?

You should see "un œuf pour un €uro"

I confirm that the DejaVu font displays well the euro and
the oe french ligature. Well, I don't know where is your problem. It has
always worked fine here, on the console and under X11.

If it can help, locale -a
~$ locale -a | grep fr_FR
