We are not really in a hurry, because I have a script that patches up an 
installed Xorg or Xfree installation.

probably km_KH.UTF-8 because the country code of Cambodia is kh.

Sorry for my slowness, but you lost me here a little. I have difficulties to 
understand how these different locale specific compose files work together. 

I will explain what I am currently doing in my installation script. I look for 
every locale that matches *.UTF-8 and I append my Khmer compose rules to the 
Compose file of these locale. I am doing this because there was no locale for 
Cambodia (kh) in the past and I want to be sure that everyone, no matter 
which locale setting they are using, is able to use the Khmer keyboard. In 
fact most people will use it in conjunction with an English keyboard because 
there are no Roman characters in it. 

I understand that when I am following what you propose I will create a Compose 
file that gets used only when my system is using a Cambodian locale but not 
in case of en_US.UTF-8
This is not want I want to achieve. 

Thanks for your patience
