What's under xsrc/xfree is just an import of Xfree86 4.0.2, nothing
more, nothing less.

wsmouse worked with XFree86-4.0.1, so I don't see why it shouldn't
work with 4.0.2. /etc/XF86Config will take either the old-style or the
new-style options:

Section "Pointer"
   Protocol        "wsmouse"
   Device          "/dev/wsmouse0"
   BaudRate        1200


Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "Wsmouse"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/wsmouse0"
