Hi all

Before I upgrade my ports tree when I push "Alt (left)+J" I got ê, and (I
don't remenber well) many thing like that. 

I use hal support in my xorg-server option and use in 


something like that : 

      <merge key="input.xkb.layout" type="string">us</merge>
      <merge key="input.xkb.variant" type="string">alt-intl</merge>

After I upgrade my port tree, it's not working. I try to recompile the
xorg-server and put in my etc/X11/xorg.conf 

	        Option  "XkbLayout"  "us"
	        Option  "XkbVariant" "alt-intl"   

It's not working. It try to put

		Option "XkbVariant" "intl" 

it's little better because I can put some special character but not in the
same place as before. 

Anyone known how can I got my old config back ?
