keyboard-configuration update

Hello:

I'm running an up to date Devuan ASCII 4.9.0-8-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.144-3.1.

After much searching, it would seem getting my Sun Microsystems Type 7 keyboard working properly requires an update to the keyboard-configuration package v1.164.

In saying this, I'm assuming (perhaps incorrectly) that the keyboard-configuration package (handling the system wide keyboard preferences) works with or is directly linked to whatever files xkeyboard-config has.

The latest available version of xkeyboard-config is v2.24 (10/2018) but it is not a package.

See: xkeyboard-config should be updated to 2.24.

This latest version includes the following patches and configuration files:

https://github.com/oracle/solaris-userl … 2b8882a06d
https://github.com/oracle/solaris-userl … ee7066a20c
https://github.com/oracle/solaris-userl … d7eb4fb0b5
https://github.com/oracle/solaris-userl … d4f16b8163

How can I update xkeyboard-config so that keyboard-configuration will have the proper configuration options? 

Thanks in advance.

A.

Edit:

The installed xkeyboard-config in Devuan ASCII (apparently) is v2.19.

groucho@devuan:~$ cat /usr/share/pkgconfig/xkeyboard-config.pc
prefix=/usr

datadir=${datarootdir}
