locales issues

I'm trying to put the console in Unicode mode following the instructions from 
chapter 7.6 in the LFS book svn version. I'm a spanish native speaker and 
this is my /etc/sysconfig/console file:

# Begin /etc/sysconfig/console

FONT="lat9w-16 -m 8859-15"

# End /etc/sysconfig/console

I get correctly the 'euro' symbol and the ñ (ntilde) in the console but when I 
try to get accents with the dead keys of my 'es' keyboard I get -'a- instead 
of -á-.
The same with é, í, ó, ú.

It's possible to  obtain the spanish accents in the current version of LFS?
