Hm, I wouldn't bet that this is the problem. I compiled the server
without hal/hotplug support and the keyboard didn't work either.

I don't have any warnings in my Xorg.0.log. Here's the relevant part:
,----[ /var/log/Xorg.0.log ]
| (II) LoadModule: "kbd"
| (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input//kbd_drv.so
| (II) Module kbd: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
| compiled for 1.4.0, module version = 1.2.2
| Module class: X.Org XInput Driver
| ABI class: X.Org XInput driver, version 2.0
No errors and no warnings follow.
It's really a mess. Now I live and work on a simple console for nearly
two days. What a luck that I use emacs for everything, so I'm not
completely left stranded.
