I might be wrong here, but it's my impression that kbd is being
replaced by consoletools. If you can find out whether that is the case
I'd be interested to hear.

I recently replaced kbd by consoletools (from "unstable") because kbd
is not up to date with the kernel's interface for ACMs. (If you're
interested, see con_[gs]et_trans_(old|new) in
drivers/char/consolemap.c; kbd uses the old ones.)

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a Slovak keyboard in
consoletools either:

$ find /usr/share/keymaps/ -name '*sk*'
$ find /usr/share/keymaps/ -name '*slov*'

Yann Dirson <dirson@debian.org> is in charge of consoletools ...
