You will need a self-compiled kernel in any way as with 1.1 (IIRC) the
default console driver was pc(4) while only vt(4) supported changing
keymaps. If at all, I don't have all the sources here, and of course no
system to check. An option that was only documented in NetBSD 1.4 is:
# Keyboard layout configuration for pccons
(Personally, I'd recommend trying a 3.0_RC5/i386 "tiny" or "small"
