This should get you started:

<?xml version=3D"1.0" encoding=3D"ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version=3D"0.2">
    <match key=3D"info.capabilities" contains=3D"input.keyboard">
      <merge key=3D"input.xkb.layout" type=3D"string">gb</merge>

Change the `gb' in the example to your local keymap name, save the file
as /usr/local/etc/hal/fdi/policy/x11-input.fdi and restart hald.
