Bug#661825: do we need to provide keymaps in kbdcontrol?

Hi all,

I have the impression that everything needed to handle keyboard
properly on GNU/kFreeBSD is already in place:

- keyboard-configuration provides the user setting (maybe fed from
D-I) and /etc/init.d/keyboard-setup

- In turn, /etc/init.d/keyboard-setup uses /bin/setupcon from console-setup

- In turn, /bin/setupcon uses /bin/kbdcontrol to load fonts from

Do we need to do anything else in kbdcontrol to make this work?  It
seems that the only missing thing is removing the fonts we're
currently providing in /usr/share/syscons/keymaps, or move them aside
to another package, since these aren't being used anymore.
