I tried to use the gnome-keyboard-properties applet, but it is not
completely clear to me which settings I should use.
Currently the settings are:
keyboard model:  Generic 105-key (Intl) PC which seems ok.
keyboard layout: U.S. English which seems ok as well. 
options: none. I guess I should select "Right Alt is compose" here, but
if I do that I still can't use the AltGr+5 keys to get the euro symbol.

So what settings should I try?

Well they match alright (see attached file).

Well I don't think the type of keyboard really matters, my keyboard has
a normal US layout with some additional Internet and multimedia keys. I
hope someone can give me a little bit more information about how to
configure keyboards. The documentation of XFree86 and Xkb isn't very
helpfull and the Debian Euro Support howto doesn't really help either.
Furthermore I don't really understand why Gnome doesn't use the settings
from my XF86Config-4 file. 

Greetings Arjan
xkb_keymap {
	xkb_keycodes  { include "xfree86+aliases(qwerty)"	};
	xkb_types     { include "complete"	};
	xkb_compat    { include "complete"	};
	xkb_symbols   { include "pc/pc(pc105)+pc/us"	};
	xkb_geometry  { include "pc(pc105)"	};
