Thanks. This doesn't seem to be an option for xkbcomp. It's also not
an option for the Xserver. Using it as configure option for building
xkbcomp doesn't change anything. I didn't check yet if it changes
anything when using it as configure option for building the Xserver.

I'm not sure how the Xserver calls xkbcomp, when I'm doing e.g.
"setxkbmap de". So could give me a hint how I need to call xkbcomp
to reproduce this issue manually? Thanks.
