This man page contains very useful information for people using `setxkbmap`. In most cases it will eliminate the need to go hunting all over /usr/share/X11/xkb files in search of (obscure) options.

AFAICT all that is required to build it is a (make-)dependency on extra/libxslt, which provides /usr/bin/xsltproc. The configure step should pick that up automatically and the make step should then build the man page.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
xkeyboard-config 2.17-1
libxslt 1.1.28-4
* config and/or log files etc.
xkeyboard-config.7 man page from locally built package, for reference.

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

Also, `man setxkbmap` references this man page in the "SEE ALSO" section.
