Pick the one you need and set xorg.conf accordingly:

I'm using an english keayboard with international accents (my native tongue is 
spanish so I need á,é,í,ó,ú,ü and ñ .. but I also need portuguese chars like 
ç and ã, ê, ô and so on ...).

Here's my "InputDevice" section in xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
    Driver         "kbd"
    Option         "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option         "XkbLayout" "us(alt-intl)"
    Option         "XkbOptions" "compose:rwin"

If you have a spanish or latam keyboard, you'll probably need 
latinamerican.iso.acc.kbd ... or latinamerican.kbd ... Maybe 
spanish.iso15.acc.kbd .. play around with those until you find the one that 
better suits your needs :)
