Never done it, but there's also kbdmap(1) which is menu driven so probably easier. It lives in /usr/sbin so in single user mode you will need to ensure /usr is mounted.

I use the following in my kernel configuration file, to switch
the kernel's default keyboard layout to german:

Code:
options         ATKBD_DFLT_KEYMAP
makeoptions     ATKBD_DFLT_KEYMAP="german.iso"

If the correct keymap is configured in /etc/rc.conf, it is also possible to just use
# /etc/rc.d/syscons start
or
# service syscons start
to set your console and keymap settings.
