As a quick hack
xmodmap -e "keycode 46 = l L at"
(the keycode might vary, use xev to look it up)
should do it, I have a ~/.Xmodmap file which I run on login. This way
you also don't break the sortof working configuration itself.

Go to groups.google.com and search for the thread "Keyboard on X with
missing keys" in the NG linux.debian.ports.powerpc (or at the debian
mailinglist with the same name) and read through this thread.
This problem with non US Keyboards seems to be a common problem on PPC
