I recently had the same problem after upgrading X - the keyboard
settings for the german language in a /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
file did no longer work (nor did the keyboard work at all); I had
to set them in a per-user manner using setxkbmap in ~/.xsession,
as you already correctly did, with the exception that display managers
don't read ~/.xinitrc, they use ~/.xsession (problem already solved).
