If you do end up following the boot method again. See if you can edit
/etc/sysconfig/console on the CLFS system and set your keymap in there.
That may be all you need to do. Off the top of my head I don't remember
if the console bootscript is included with the minimal set of scripts. I
would assume that it is though.

If that doesn't work I'd like to know so that it can be fixed. I only
have keyboards with a QWERTY US layout so I've never had any issues with
the layout myself.
