I can confirm that neither ATKBD_DFLT_KEYMAP nor UKBD_DFLT_KEYMAP, nor 
SC_DFLT_FONT for that matter, works as intended.

I have never had any success with:

options         SC_DFLT_FONT
makeoptions     SC_DFLT_FONT=iso

options         UKBD_DFLT_KEYMAP
makeoptions     UKBD_DFLT_KEYMAP=norwegian.iso

options         ATKBD_DFLT_KEYMAP
makeoptions     ATKBD_DFLT_KEYMAP=norwegian.iso

Please prove me wrong.
