Bug#577852: proper gtk+ way to define keyboard?

I'm looking for the proper gtk+ way to define and set keyboard layouts.
is it through usage of `setxkbmap`? this is what one uses on Maemo so
I assume it is the way to go.
well, also using setxkbmap dead_stroke does not work.
in the us(mac) layout dead_stroke is associated to the 'S' key, with
shift and right alt modifiers.
after `setxkbmap "us(mac)"` the behaviour I get is exactly as what I
get when I alter the keyboard layout using xmodmap, namely:
* gnome-terminal: dead_stroke does not compose with following key
* xev shows the KeyPress event for dead_stroke
* uxterm: dead_stroke correctly composes ħđøł
I've googled in a few different sessions and I don't find anything
looking like composition tables for gtk+ anywhere, except possibly this
very bug report.
