Keymap change in locally installed wmii?

Hi folks,
I've installed wmii as window manager (slackware 13.1) locally, i.e. not system wide. I use a german keyboard and this works fine until I start my window manager. within wmii the german layout is not present (neither in xterm nor in emacs or ooo3 etc).
I changed the file /etc/X11/xorg-conf already accordingly but without any effect. Hence I suspect that the local installation of the wmii requires a change of another config-file?!
any hints appreciated!
