IMPS/2 for mouse-wheel not supported

I have a brand new Microsoft optical wheel mouse with a 'tilt wheel'.
It works as a 3-button mouse under X with:
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psm0"
but the wheel doesn't work (i.e. doesn't even show up in `xev`)
The X documentation:
[ http://www.xfree86.org/current/mouse6.html ]
seems to suggest that I use either IMPS/2 or ExplorerPS/2, but both of these
fail with "Protocol not supported".
Does FreeBSD support "PS/2 mouse initialization" (which the above link says is
required for these protocols)? Is there a kernel module I need to enable
Any help would be much appreciated.
