Uh, I forgot to mention that while extracting the sets I noticed the
following message from pax(1):
pax: Cannot rename ./usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pc.00265g to
./usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pc (Is a directory)
However, I removed the directory in question and extracted the set
again, but the screen still goes black as soon as Xorg is running.

This email fills a much-needed gap in the archives.
