Take a look at this section from your FreeBSD systems. It looks like you
have AutoAddDevices set to Off, which is on by default in PC-BSD Alphas:
Screen 0 "Screen0" 1440 0
Screen 1 "Screen1" rightOf "Screen0"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "Off"
Could you give that a try on a PC-BSD system? If putting that into your xorg.conf fixes
your mouse / keyboard, then we can nail down the issue as being something with HAL, since xorg
tries to probe for devices via HAL with that option turned on.
