you have to use "wsmouse" as protocol and /dev/wsmouse0 as device in
your /etc/XF86Config.
if you want to use the wheel of your mouse, install imwhell (i don't
know if it's in pkgsrc, for me it didn't compile, though this was some
time ago. anyway, the linux binary works fine), and
        ZAxisMapping  4 5
as well in your /etc/XF86Config.
