In my opinion, one solution is to move all mac specific layouts to the
respective pc file. Then we can get rid of the files in macintosh_vndr.
I don't see a problem if we allow mac users to use non-mac layouts and
pc users to use mac layouts.
By the way, did you select Mac keyboard model manually? As far as I can
remember, by default, keyboard-configuration (hence the installer too)
use pc keyboard model on Macs (and not macintosh, ibook, powerbook,
macbook78 or macbook79).
Are there some problems if you reconfigure keyboard-configuration to use
pc keyboard model? In this case there will be no need to copy the altgr
part of the pc keyboard to the macintosh one.
