First of all, what version of SVGAlib you have?
If it's old, you're better off to upgrade it to latest
version (If I remember right, 1.4.3 is the latest stable).

Anyway, I would recommend using SDL or GGI (even as a SVGAlib wrapper),
SVGAlib is a quirky little bugger, that does not work properly
in many situations. And it's buggy too + requires SUID root.

Marco already pointed out the FreeBSD-thing ;)

Yes, there are some keyboard handling routines in SVGAlib.
