The latest builds of X have changed a few defaults. Notably, the man page for xorg.conf now suggests this. > Option "AllowEmptyInput" "boolean" > If enabled, don't add the standard keyboard and mouse drivers, > if there are no input devices in the config file.

So by default, it now doesn't add input devices. I found that building a vestigal xorg.conf so I could change that back to "no" got me my input devices back. You may also want to change the DontZap option to get back the Ctrl-Alt-BS key sequence to exit the X server.
