My first instinct is that SDL is grabbing the keys in a way that ignores the X keyboard settings. Maybe try the XCB frontend? (“netsurf-fb -f x”) That may fix the weird mappings, but I’m not sure it will help with dead keys; I’ve never gotten the compose key (which in X is similar to dead keys) to work even on the GTK frontend.

No, the SDL frontend doesn’t use XCB at all. By the way, the proper fix for that would be to remove the symlink, build netsurf-fb on your machine, and link it against your existing libraries. Or, alternately, to update your base system and packages to a new snapshot (one that’s in sync).
Many thanks to the forum regulars who put time and effort into helping others solve their problems.
