OK.  Make sure your /etc/XF86Config contains the lines:

Section "Pointer"
    Protocol    "PS/2"
    Device      "/dev/psm0"

If you're running a standard kernel, you'll also have to enable the
PS/2 mouse port by booting with the -c option (UserConfig), selecting
'v' for the full-screen configuration editor, and following the
instructions.  They're described in more detail in "The Complete
FreeBSD", second edition
(http://www.cdrom.com/titles/os/bsdbook2.htm).
