Adding keymaps with busybox.

I have the g4l project that uses busybox, and was just asked by a user how 
to have it use a swiss german keyboard??

The rcS file has an line that was comment out long ago by a previous 
maintainer of the project that has the line.

#/sbin/loadkmap < /var/lib/kbd/

As far as I can tell, the g4l has never had that directory, so I am assuming 
this was copied from somewhere else. I would think that one would only 
need to find the correct file, and load it with the busybox 
loadkmap which is built into the busybox, but I don't seem to be able to find a 
location for these files?

G4L is a console only boot cd, so it is just console keyboard mapping. 

It may also be something that needs to be done in the kernel builds, which 
are the straight kernels.
