     After shutting down the X server on the i386 machine I found this errors
     on the console:
     syntax error: line 1 of pc
     The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
     > Error:   Error interpreting include file "pc"
     >          Exiting
     >          Abandoning symbols file "default"
     However, I can not find any trace of a relevant "*pc*" file installed
     on my system or build in $OBJDIR anywhere - where should it come frome and
     where should it be installed?
 try extracting xbase.tgz and watch for errors.  then delete the
 old symbols/pc directory and re-extract again and it might work..
 xkeyboard-config repalced xkbdata, but it also replaced a subdir
 with a file, and upgrades don't know about dealing with this yet.
 (there's another PR.)
