I had the same problem when 2 weeks ago i installed FreeBSD7.

the solution was:

# Xorg -configure to create an default xorg.conf file.


Apparently for the mouse to work it needs a default{at least} xorg.conf file.


PS: If this is regular behaviour of X11 shouldn't a note be made in
the handbook?
