At least under X you can access these keys with
fn+alt (release fn)+7,8,9,0
Don't know the key for "\"
I have a german keyboard and there is the "ß" key right of "0"
I think it is "-" on english keyboards. Just try.

You need the option
Option "XkbModel" "Macintosh"
under InputDevice to get this working

I'm using an ibook with the italian keyboard.
Under init3 I've modified
Code:
/usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwerty/it.map.gz

replacing some keycodes to fit my exigencies, then I saved it to another file and I configured
Code:
/etc/rc.conf

to load it.
Under X I created a new .Xmodmap file that is automatically loaded each time I start X

PS: how can I get ~ under macosx?
