I never did that. Fpc in the ports has been fragmented into lots of
single ports in the past. Since I prefer to have anything in one go I do
the same as Graeme, using the official installers.

For lazarus anything I do is get the source, unpack an type "make
bigide" in it's directory.

If you run X by the start script "startx" it is sufficient to add the
following line to the file ".xinitrc" in you home directory:

setxkbmap de

Replacing the "de" with what you need. Type "man setxkbmap" in a
terminal (xterm) for more info. And don't get confused, names starting
with a dot are hidden but existing.

Have fun,
