New mkinitcpio is now in Testing,
and a fixed/improved klibc-kbd-1.15.20080312-2 as well.
Please signoff both kbd and klibc-kbd.
How to test klibc-kbd:
* add 'keymap' hook to mkinitcpio.conf and rebuild the image
* boot with break=y
* you should see the same font as in your normal plain-text console
* try to enter some non-English symbols to see that keymap actually works
