emulators/qemu: boots fine ubuntu-17.10.1-desktop-amd64.iso, but guest has no mouse

The host is a 12-CURRENT amd64 and I compiled qemu from the ports as
version 2.12.1_1

The guest boots fine an ISO image ubuntu-17.10.1-desktop-amd64.iso with:

# qemu-system-x86_64 -boot d -cdrom ubuntu-17.10.1-desktop-amd64.iso -m 512

but, the guest has no mouse when I click into the qemu window. The Xorg
of the host system sees the touchpoint as /dev/sysmouse and an
additional USB mouse as /dev/ums0.

Is this a known issue or do I something wrong?
