Sarge X11 Amiga clgen configuration


For some time I have been having trouble getting the Sarge release of X to work on my Amiga 
2000 w/clgen video board.  I hope the following additional information will give someone 
here an 'a ha!' moment that can lead me to a solution.

I reinstalled the x-window-system package, after having removed all the x* and related 
packages (purged).

When X attempts to start after a reboot, it does not start, and when X is started via the 
shell (user root), I get the following error message:

> Error:            Can't find file "pc/usa1" for symbols include
>                   Exiting
>                   Abandoning symbols file "default"

Note that this error does not cause the server to shut down when run from a logged in shell 
via the startx command, but it does seem to cause the server to shut down when starting from 
the boot process.

The above error is generated when I use the following for the keyboard segment of my 

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Generic Keyboard"
	Driver		"keyboard"
	Option		"CoreKeyboard"
	Option		"XkbRules"	"xfree86"
	Option		"XkbModel"	"amiga"
	Option		"XkbLayout"	"usa1"
	Option		"CustomKeycodes"

Note that the above is hand-modified, as the package configuration will now allow you to 
select "Option "CustomKeycodes" which is needed to get uppercase characters.

I did notice that there is no item for "amiga" or "usa1" in the /etc/X11/xkb/symbols
