Hello, i've found a way to get portuguese keyboard support on netbsd, and i think you should include this on the next version.

So.. what you have to do is this:

add this struct to /sys/dev/pckbc/wskbdmap_mfii.c

static const keysym_t pckbd_keydesc_pt[] = {
/*  pos      normal                shifted         altgr                shift-altgr */
    KC(3),   KS_2,                KS_quotedbl,        KS_at,
    KC(4),   KS_3,                KS_numbersign,        KS_sterling,
    KC(5),   KS_4,                KS_dollar,
    KC(7),   KS_6,                KS_ampersand,
    KC(8),   KS_7,                KS_slash,        KS_braceleft,
    KC(9),   KS_8,                KS_parenleft,        KS_bracketleft,
    KC(10),  KS_9,                KS_parenright,        KS_bracketright,
    KC(11),  KS_0,                KS_equal,        KS_braceright,
    KC(12),  KS_apostrophe,        KS_question,
    KC(13),  KS_less,                KS_greater,
    KC(26),  KS_plus,                KS_asterisk,
    KC(27),  KS_dead_acute,        KS_dead_grave,
    KC(39),  KS_ccedilla,        KS_Ccedilla,
    KC(40),  KS_masculine,        KS_ordfeminine,
    KC(41),  KS_backslash,        KS_bar,
    KC(43),  KS_dead_tilde,        KS_dead_circumflex,
    KC(51),  KS_comma,                KS_semicolon,
    KC(52),  KS_period,         KS_colon,
    KC(53),  KS_minus,                KS_underscore,
    KC(86),  KS_less,                KS_greater,
    KC(184), KS_Mode_switch,        KS_Multi_key,

add this line:

KBD_MAP(KB_PT,                        KB_US,        pckbd_keydesc_pt),

to the struct

const struct wscons_keydesc pckbd_keydesctab[]

and compile the kernel... and if we want to make the .pt keyboard the default we add this to the kernel config file:

# see dev/pckbc/wskbdmap_mfii.c for implemented layouts
options         PCKBD_LAYOUT="(KB_PT)"

I hope this helps, cause i know a lot of portuguese netbsd users that are waiting for this feature for a long time.
