I have a Wacom Graphire4 tablet working just fine (including pressure
sensitivity) with the usbtablet(4) driver from NetBSD's xsrc .  IIRC this
driver was written by Lennart Augustsson for Net/OpenBSD, but was never
included upstream.

The code is in xsrc/xfree/xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/input/usbtablet,
it's probably not that hard to get it working with modular  But I'm
still using xsrc XFree86 on my desktop.
