I mean exactly what the LFS book means when it talks about "compiling the
keymap into the kernel". 
Since you don't seem to understand what I'm talking about I assume that
you've skipped the relevant section of the book completely and didn't even
read it. Please read

*completely*, even though it says that people with standard US keyboards
can skip the part about keymaps.

Now about your problem. Have you removed the loadkeys symlink


? If you haven't set up your default keymap as per the instructions from
section 6/kbd, you will need to do that or loadkeys will probably load
some crap from who-knows-where.
