These days Xorg should not need any explicit configuration at all anymore.

Silly question ... how does it derive keyboard layout?
Stock XOrg always gives me a US layout and I have a UK keyboard.

You can have a keyboard-only /etc/xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "Protocol" "wskbd"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/wskbd"
        Option      "XkbModel" "type6_usb"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "de"
        Option      "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"

We should fix that.
I told wscons it's a UK keyboard already.

Then you might want to use x11/xf86-input-ws instead of xf86-input-keyboard. I do not think I have tested it myself, so YMMV.
