I came across that too very recently. I agree that it needs to be updated, 
but I'm unsure if just replacing the name of the config file is correct.

IMO the whole section needs to be checked for validity and until that is 
done it is more clear to leave the outdated configuration file.
Currently I have no idea if the instructions for using gpm still work and 
AFAIK /dev/psaux is fairly obsolete as mouse device (should be
/dev/input/mice) although /dev/psaux may still be used for touchpads.
