Documentation for XkbOptions

Today I learned that in Debian, all of those nifty xkboptions like "ctrl:nocaps" are listed in files in /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules.

However, none of them have helped me get my left Alt key to stop behaving like an AltGr key. xev even says that the key is Alt_L, but that's not how it's acting. The right Alt key — the one actually labeled AltGr — also behaves like AltGr. Not having an Alt key is seriously cramping my Emacs usage.

On the upside, I now have the X server starting on the Gdium, though only by using fbdev. The siliconmotion driver segfaults. But hey, progress.
