neo-layout and FreeBSD

Hello! I am using the neo-layout ( and I am encountering
problems with its 4th layer on FreeBSD. I am using a xmodmap(1) and usually layer
4 is toggled with the ISO_Level3_Shift key located on the less-key (on the german
keyboard, <) and the Alt-Gr key. It is strange that everything works fine with the
same xmodmap on Linux. Does anybody has an idea what is going wrong?
Best wishes Moritz

My xmodmap version is "xmodmap 1.0.8" according to the manpages.
