This one works for me:

# Begin /etc/sysconfig/console

FONT="lat0-16 -m 8859-15"

# End /etc/sysconfig/console

The only place where I specify something about keymaps is this file.
Nothing to do with kernel compilation, etc.

This was a strange behavior to me until I inserted the UNICODE=1.
Then, inside vim, some accented vowels, like à, are not correctly displayed.

Hope this can help.
