It was the good way so I managed to do it work again !
Thx to Thomas & Dominik ;)
However I have to compile with ADB support but not ADB Keymap.
Unless, there are no keyboard entries detected !!!!
I'll try to compile a 2.6 kernel to see
Here's an sample from my .config file :
# CONFIG_PMAC_PBOOK is not set
# CONFIG_PMAC_BACKLIGHT is not set
# CONFIG_ADB_MACIO= is not set
# CONFIG_ANSLCD is not set
