well I figure it must be something like that but the link is 
defkeymap.kmap.gz -> i386/qwerty/uk.kmap.gz
(in /usr/share/keymaps/ )

it's not that important but I'd kind of like to tidy it up
at startup I get the message (from memory)
loading default keymap.../usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwerty/defkeymap.kmap.gz 

this stikes me as odd as I was expecting  
loading default keymap.../usr/share/keymaps/defkeymap.kmap.gz
