    Unfortunately, I don't yet use Gentoo, even though I'd like to, so I don't know exactly where to change it. Grep through your initscripts searching for something that calls `loadkeys' and you should be able to find it, if noone else can tip you off.

    The keyboard layout description files are usually stored in /lib/kbd/keymaps, though. The ones you're looking for are probably in /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty.

    the keyboard map set at boot is in /etc/rc.conf

    You can also edit your keyboard language through XF86Config.

    Ah yes, that makes more sense.
