This is in the docs somewhere.  OTOH, I can't find it
at the moment, maybe you can't either.

In /etc/rc.conf:

        moused_flags="-z 4"

In XF86Config:

        Section "InputDevice"
                Identifier  "Mouse0"
                Driver      "mouse"
                Option      "Protocol" "auto"
                Option      "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
                Option      "Buttons" "5"

Reboot, voila!
