/etc/hal/fdi, e.g.:
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
    <match key="input.xkb.rules" contains="base">
      <merge key="input.xkb.layout" type="string">math</merge>
      <append key="input.xkb.options" type="strlist">ctrl:nocaps</append>
      <append key="input.xkb.options" type="strlist">compose:ralt</append>

This is what I use.
