Yeah, there's differences. I'll try with your settings and come back to

This is what X -configure gave me (the commented stuff comes from

I don't have that, I'm just using GENERIC, and set encoding de.nodead
in my wscons.conf.

I go testing your Keyboard - Inputdevice section now ....
Note: (one powerbutton press later) - don't ctrl+alt+f2 to get into
your console -- at least with my current (old) settings this freezes
the display, no longer reacting on keypresses (not even ctrl+alt+esc
and sync typed blindly ...).
With your InputDevice section X now works fine (same kernel still,
wscons encoding set still). This is not what X -configure outputs
though (see my old section).
Thank you very much!
I don't dare going into the console to test altgr + e :). The two
apostrophes: ` and ´ <-- uhm..
