With no xorg.conf configuration, Xorg can't detect mouse protocol.

 (EE) <default pointer>: No Protocol specified
 (EE) PreInit failed for input device "<default pointer>"
 (II) UnloadModule: "mouse"

My workaround is to create a xorg.conf that includes:

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

Run Xorg without xorg.conf.
Maybe update /hw/xfree86/os-support/bsd/bsd_mouse.c to know WSCONS
(not just OpenBSD). I haven't finished figuring this out, since I had
other problems of not detecting device correctly too.

xorg-server should match xf86-input-mouse I think.

(By the way, why doesn't the xf86-input-mouse in xsrc have the bsd_mouse.c?
I understand it is not used, but why does pkgsrc build and link with it?)
