You need to MAKEDEV ttyE*, and add them to /etc/ttys

I have a patch for Swedish (same as Finnish) layout, but I think that
the interface to the kernel pretty much sucks, so I don't know if I
should just send-pr it, or if I should fix things more thoroughly.

In the meantime, I guess that the following should do the trick:

# wsconsctl -w encoding=dk
# wsconsctl -w map+='
keycode 12 = plus question backslash
keycode 27 = dead_diaeresis dead_circumflex dead_tilde
keycode 39 = odiaeresis
keycode 40 = adiaeresis
keycode 41 = paragraph onehalf
keycode 86 = less greater bar'
