xkeyboard-config is part of "modularisation" of X.  Most user-oriented 
distributions decide to ship it (it also provides layout name
translations), but apparently others don't.  Complain to Debian to
have it included.  Or help speed up the modularisation process, so
official X starts including xkeyboard-config (fwiw, no bugs are fixed
in current xlibs xkb repository, so xkeyboard-config is much better at
that as well).

It has nothing to do with Gnome, but rather with your distributor of
GNU/Linux.  Try installing "xkeyboard-config" package yourself, or
asking Debian maintainers to do it for you.
