 Usually, it isn't a library problem.  Either you missed xkbdata, or
it got put in the wrong place.  If you have xorg.lst in a different
place, you can symlink /usr/lib/X11/xkb to wherever you put it.

 The xkb directory contains a number of other directories (compat,
geometry, keycodes, keymap, rules, symbols are probably the more
interesting) as well as e.g. compat.dir geometry.dir (so you can
search for those if you know you installed it _somewhere_).
