Presumably an X keymap problem or something, anyway should be on the toolkit 
or X level.

If you run 'xev' what is the output when you hit the ' key? - it should
be something like:

KeyPress event, serial 25, synthetic NO, window 0x3000001,
    root 0x3b, subw 0x0, time 1928590717, (112,44), root:(124,86),
    state 0x0, keycode 34 (keysym 0xfe51, dead_acute), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 2 bytes:  "´"
