System: NetBSD 5.0_STABLE NetBSD 5.0_STABLE (....) #0: Wed

Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
At some point in the last month, /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pc has
morphed from a file to a directory. This confuses xkbcomp(1) when any
attempt is made to modify the keymap on my amd64 box.

There are rumours of this being documented somewhere, but this is no use
whatsoever for someone doing a clean install of NetBSD-5.
Perform a clean install of native xorg from the netbsd-5 branch and
attemp to modify the default keymap using:

    setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout gb

Read extremely unhelpful error in the xorg logfile:

        (EE) Error loading keymap /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkbserver-0.xkm

Slightly more information in kdm.log:
        syntax error: line 1 of pc
        The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
        > Error:            Error interpreting include file "pc"
        >                   Exiting
        >                   Abandoning symbols file "default"
