since 2.6.22-1-mac doesn't have a /dev/adbmouse busmouse i changed 
 /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 to:

Option         "Device"                "/dev/input/mice"
Option         "Protocol"              "ImPS/2"

xfree/startx now shows a non-flashing underline cursor, which turns
blue and hangs the system.
reboot and reload 2.2.25-mac ...
