Bug#275237: "Error loading new keyboard description" using us_intl keyboard

Package: xlibs
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-8

us_intl keyboard layout stop working. When stating X the keyboard works
like the common us layout (no deadkeys).

/etc/X11/XF86Config-4 snip:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xfree86"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc104"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "us_intl"

If I try to load it with setxkbmap I get:
$ setxkbmap -v 10 us_intl
Setting verbose level to 10
locale is C
Warning! Multiple definitions of keyboard layout

Applied rules from xfree86:

XFree86 log says:
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:

Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
Error loading keymap /var/tmp/server-0.xkm

There's no file in /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/ called pc/us_intl but is there a

If I copy /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/us_intl to /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/pc/us_intl and
I add a line:
    include "pc/us"
just next to the line
    name[Group1]= "US/ASCII";

It works fine.
