Thank you for the reply.  I enabled moused in rc.conf.  However mouse is 
still broken.

I see the following:
  service moused restart
moused not running? (check /var/run/

Starting default mousedmoused: unable to open /dev/psm0: No such file or 

# cat /var/run/

cat: /var/run/ No such file or directory

# ls -l /var/run/

ls: /var/run/ No such file or directory
