Touchpad problems

Try with moused on.
moused_enable=“YES” in rc.conf

and something like 
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "auto"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7”
in xorg.conf (auto generated for me by X).

That together with hw.psm.synaptics_support=“1” in loader.conf makes it work for me.
