Here is my config's and is working for me.

 egrep "(hal|dbus)" /etc/rc.conf
# dbus_enable="YES"
# hald_enable="YES"

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "X.org Configured"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "AutoAddDevices"  "false"

Hope this helps.
