Necessary to Reconfigure New XFree86 If No Changes?

A while ago, I deinstalled XFree86-4.X and installed XFree86 3.X in
error. Not sure of the version number of the original 4.X package, but
I'm currently running FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE and I installed XFree86-4.X
when I installed the operating system. When I discovered the error, I
deinstalled the 3.X version (before configuring it) and then installed
the most recent XFree86-4.3.0,1. I ran startx (without configuring
anything) and everything seemed fine.
Today, I installed a new mouse (two button w/wheel) but the wheel wasn't
functioning. Someone had earlier requested help with a similar problem
and they were advised to edit their /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file. I don't
have a XF86Config-4 file, just a XF86Config file. I've made more than
my share of bone-head moves with FreeBSD and I'm wondering now if should
have configured XFree86-4.3.0,1. Is there an obvious way to tell?
Thanks in advance,
