Which task package installs gpm?

I've been putting the finishing touches on my book, and ran across a bit
of confusion. One of the anXious config screens, the one for setting the
mouse device, indicates that /dev/gpmdata should be used if gpm is being
installed. However, the entry into this phase was done by choosing
"simple" and then picking from a bunch of task packages. I can't tell
which of these task packages installs gpm. I've done several installs with
different selections from the presented tasks, and it seems that I always
get gpm. I haven't gone through all the info screens on the task
screen. Should I expect to find this information there?

I expect it will be listed in the package list provided by apt-get, but
most of that scrolls off the screen before it can possibly be read, so I
couldn't verify anything from that either.

Any pointers are greatly appreciated.
