I've got the same problem on my laptop here.

I don't see any errors/warnings in my log file.
I recently let Daniel Stone look at my laptop and he was able to make
some magic incantations to get things working after the X server
started, (I don't recall know what those incantations were). But in
the short time he had, he did not succeed in making a persistent fix,
and he was somewhat stumped.
My installation is to /opt/xorg so I'm assuming that there's some xkbd
data files that didn't get installed there for some reason. (This
feels like a similar problem to some "missing" application defaults
that I had to copy from /usr/X11R6 in order to get things like xmag to
start functioning again).
