Well, more likely that nobody could really be bothered to take the time to
learn about it and fix the issue. I tried a bit, but didn't really get to it,
and as my ibook is not my main plateform, i usually just use it while
travelling, which is not really the best place to fix this kind of stuff.

Mmm, maybe me or Michel are the best candidates for fixing this, i will see if
i get a bit of fre time for this, it would really be a pity to have this
unsolved and sarge releasing with a broken french keymap.
I never fuly understood why you needed to rebuild the xkb module though, nor
do i really know what should be the right way for it to work in the first
place, never having used a pmac before.
