On 12 there should be evdev support. It is however not in fort yet, so one
needs a small patch to the port Makefile.

Then you also need to add kern.evdev.rcpt_mask="12" to sysctl.conf

You also need to compile libepoll-shim from ports to get the
20181229-version (was not available as a package last time I checked ).

The above with he.psm.synaptics_support=1 and no moused (and hopefully no
extra conf for xorg ) should get you trackpad support.

Look at Xorg.0.log after doing the above and see how it detects and handles
your trackpad.
