Xorg, lightdm, xfce & German Keyboard

after some experience with Linux (Debian & Ubuntu), I'm just taking some
first steps with FreeBSD (2.1-RELEASE-p6).
As I'm used to (and quite like) it, I chose lightdm as display manager
and XFCE4 as desktop. Graphical login is running fine - with just one
annoying problem: I can't type umlauts in my xfce4-terminal when lightdm
managed my login: Entering an ä results in displaying "a.
When going to Graphics with "startx" and ~/.xinitrc like this
all is fine: Umlauts in xfce4-terminal are appearing. "env" then shows:
After login with lightdm, "env" reveals that neither LANG nor MM_CHARSET
have been set.
I tried creating a file /usr/local/etc/X11/Xkbmap containing "de" (see
line 26 of /usr/local/etc/lightdm/Xsession) - with no success.
I'm just wondering how to make lightdm modify my environment in the same
way my .xinitrc does it - and appreciate your hints.
TIA & Kind Regards,
