In the absence of any information (that I could see) to do anything
else, I tried to mimic the configuration in -STABLE, which has:

dhcp-135[2] ls -l /dev/*mouse*
lrwx------  1 root  wheel        13 Aug  8 17:04 /dev/mouse -> /dev/sysmouse
crw-------  1 root  wheel   12, 128 Aug 11 07:09 /dev/sysmouse

(And since I'm running both -STABLE & -CURRENT on the same machine, and
using the same flavor of XFree86 in each environment, I thought it would
be a nice touch to keep the XF86Config files the same.)
