Of course, I spent 20 minutes looking for it before sending the e-mail...
and then found it about 90 seconds later.

For future reference (my own and anyone else who cares), the locale files
are all in /usr/share/X11/locale, and in particular for the US the relevant
file is: /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose.

And the way to get a degree sign is compose o o. Like this: ° :-)
