Unpacked port, moded configure, rebuilt and installed xorg-server as suggested
then when loading X with xorg.conf like.......

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "keyboard"

I get <snip from xorg.0.log> 

(II) LoadModule: "keyboard"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input/keyboard_drv.o
(EE) LoadModule: Module keyboard does not have a keyboardModuleData data object.
(II) UnloadModule: "keyboard"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input/keyboard_drv.o
(EE) Failed to load module "keyboard" (invalid module, 0)

..... and then

(WW) *** WARNING the legacy keyboard driver "keyboard" is deprecated
(WW) *** and will be removed in the next release of the Xorg server.
(WW) *** Please consider using the the new "kbd" driver for "Keyboard0".

Behaviour as before...

 Keys on the keyboard produce incorrect but=20
 consistent key patterns on the screen.  For
 example in xterm the key"4" always produces=20
 "ff", key "5" produces "fg", key "6" produces=20
 "fh" etc.

Thanks again for you help and suggestions.
