Below is what I have for FreeBSD.  It uses xkeyboard-config.

---- 8< ----
$ cat /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/kbd-layout-dvp-apl.conf 
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "KeyboardDefaults"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        Option "XkbLayout" "us,apl"
        Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
        Option "XkbVariant" "dvp,dyalog"
        Option "XkbOptions" "grp:shifts_toggle,caps:hyper"

You need to remove 'dvp' (for Dvorak dvp) if you don't know what it is.
The 'grp:shifts_toggle' sets to toggle the input from us to apl by pressing 
both shift keys.
You may remove ',caps:hyper' if you don't want the caps lock as the hyper
