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?

Great tip. I had no idea those drivers were there. I will check them and if I need more help I'll ask one of the groups you mentioned.

Thanks again!
