Xorg mouse not working after upgrade (console mouse works)

I had everything (Xorg + console mouse) working perfectly on my 6.3
system with slightly outdated ports. Now I upgraded to 6.4 and the
latest ports. I am getting some strange behavior with respect to the
mouse. I did adjust some lines of rc.conf in the process of trying to
debug the problem (moused used to be enabled and now it's not).
I have a run-of-the-mill USB mouse hooked up.
In the console (before I type "startx"), I am able to move the mouse
cursor and copy+paste just fine in the console. My rc.conf looks like
this (surprisingly, moused is NOT enalbed, and the console mouse DOES
ifconfig_em0="inet 192.168.0.5 netmask 255.255.255.0"
# added by xorg-libraries port
When I "startx", the mouse cursor won't move. I have nothing
currently in /etc/X11/xorg.conf (it's missing). I tried "Xorg
-configure" and copying the output of that to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but
no change in behavior.
I am also trying to add
to my rc.conf. Then when I try to start moused, I get the following error:
Starting default moused:moused: unable to open /dev/psm0: No such
file or directory
Had a look in /etc/defaults/rc.conf, but cannot decide on what to
change in /etc/rc.conf to make X work.
I really see no point in starting moused if the console mouse is
already working, however. Is that correct?
When I generated the xorg.conf with "Xorg -configure", I did see this
section in the xorg.conf:
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
Any ideas on how to get mouse to work in X? I had a good look at the
Handbook but everything I tried there did not fix the problem.
