Please retry with kbdcontrol as of SVN revision 269120.

With this change, "kbdcontrol -l" looks at up to 4 places for
keyboard map definitions:

1) Under the path found in the environment variable KEYMAP_PATH
2) Under the full path name specified as parameter to -l
3) Under the newcons-specific path (/usr/share/vt/keymaps) (***)
4) Under the old path used for syscons (/usr/share/syscons/keymaps)

(***) Only if using newcons as reported by sysctl kern.vty

For newcons, there was no case 4), it only looked into vt/keymaps.
But many keymaps are identical for syscons and newcons and only a
few have been converted and placed into /usr/share/vt/keymaps.
