What do you have in /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules? What keyboard data are you using?

If you're using xkeyboard-config, it defaults to only installing the
rules as "base", so you can try to set that for "XkbRules". There is a
build time option --with-xkb-rules-symlink which will setup symlinks
to the "base" rules. I build with --with-xkb-rules-symlink=xorg, which
allows Xorg to work out of the box.
