I believe the most reliable method for ps/2 mouse in FreeBSD is to run 
'moused'. Add to /etc/rc.conf:
  moused_enable="YES" 
  moused_port="/dev/psm0"
  moused_type="auto"
Then XF86Config one needs to declare the two virtual buttons for scrolling in 
the button count:
   Options "buttons" "5"
   Options "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
   Options "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
   Options "Protocol" "auto"

This way the mouse works in console mode via 'moused' and X reads mouse
via pseudo device /dev/sysmouse supported by 'moused'.
