thanks for the hand you give us. I would get into it but I did not find the 
documentation for the keymaps in XFree86. 

The /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/alt seems to be a good place but I do not know its 

All I need is:
keycode 108 = Mode_switch

It should be something like this:

// make the Keypad Enter right of the space bar ALTGR key 
partial modifier_keys
xkb_symbols "powerbookenterisaltgr" {
    key <KP_Enter> {        [       Mode_switch       ]       };

? or:

    key <KP_Enter>  {  symbols[Group1] = [ Mode_switch ] };

I have to check where to chose the XkbVariant, because the Option 
"XkbVariant" "powerbookenterisaltgr" doesn't make any difference.
