It worked ! I was able to type something usefull for once ;-)
I was able to change the keymap without recompiling my gentoo , you guys 
saved me a lot of trouble !

I used the full keymap path in rc.conf and it seems to work great. I've 
emerged console-data and picked mac-us-ext.kmap.gz as the default 
keymap. What keymap do you guys use ?
This one works, but there seem to be some little quirks : I can't ctrl-c 
a running process. I can use ctrl-c in nano perfectly. And switching 
consoles is command-fn F1 instead option-fn F1.

Anyway, I'm delighted I can start using my gentoo !

Thanks a lot for your prompt and very helpfull advice Joerg and Olivier.

Nicky
