NetBSD maat.sigusr1.org 2.99.11 NetBSD 2.99.11 (MAAT) #2: Fri Dec 24 14:46:56 UTC 2004 email@example.com:/usr/obj/sys/arch/i386/compile/MAAT i386
The default pms driver in dev/pckbport doen't take full advantages of the Synaptics touchpads. On my Fujitsu P7010, the Up/Down button does not function, because Synaptics touchpads will not send the information unless the OS sends a few PS/2 packets and puts it in Absolute mode.
Ales Krenek wrote a patch for NetBSD 2.0 that puts the touchpad in the correct mode, along with tap and tap/drag support code. I've cleaned it up substantially, and added support for additional buttons and tuning via sysctl.

New and improved patch: http://www.sigusr1.org/~kurahone/synaptics-netbsd-2.99.11.diff.gz
I'm using it right now, and it seems to work fine.
