Xkb.Option in xorg.conf ignored on OpenBSD 4.8-release

I'm having trouble to swap Ctrl and Caps_Lock. The xorg.conf Option ctrl:swapcaps is ignored on my OpenBSD 4.8-release installation. "kbd -l" lists onyl de.nodead but no de.swapctrlcaps.nodead or similar but I'm not sure whether this is only relevant for console or also for X. Speaking of which, I'd like to swap the keys on both console and X.

How do I swap them and where are the keymaps located for console?

Thanks in advance.

I'm going to answer myself here partly. swap on the console is done through wsconsctl(8) (see /etc/wsconsctl.conf). Ok, that was a rtfm. But how to swap them properly under X or make X recognize the ctrl:swapcaps option, I'm still clueless.
