We had this question or a version of it not long ago -
see if you can grep the web for gnu.emacs.help and
'<Multi_key> is undefined', then follow the white
rabbit from there.

FTR, I have the compose key up and running and
configurable both in the Linux VTs and in X, including
Emacs both cases, but I don't use the Scroll Lock key
for this (thanks heaven) so I can't help you with
details, but it should definitely be possible, so
keep digging!
