Not without user action (AFAICT). The system doesn't adjust the symlink
automatically (say I have a PS/2 mouse in /dev/psaux, or a serial one in 
/dev/ttyS1, or...). (I think new XF86Setup adjusts it on the mouse
selection step). As X defaults to /dev/mouse, and you say there's no
configuration required for xserver-xsun, I'd say that package should
create the /dev/mouse -> /dev/sunmouse symlink.

I still fail to see why that's a boot-floppies issue. 
Perhaps we should ship that symlink on sparc's base system?
