Well, it's Linux's evdev, which is roughly similar to devd(8). Likely
that can be ignored on FreeBSD by just using another InputDevice
section. Beyond that, it might require input from the freebsd-x11 list
and possibly also the freebsd-usb list. If the components are there, it
may be as simple as an x11-drivers/xf86-input-fujitsu-usb-touchscreen
port. Maybe one of the existing drivers there is for a relatively
similar USB touchscreen?
