How can you tell it's not detected by X when it doesn't display
anything? ;) Looks good from the log, you need /dev/input/mice with
protocol ImPS/2 for both.

So X does start, only you don't see anything. At least some Macs seem to
require the horizontal refresh to be around 60 kHz, so try something
in the monitor section. If that still doesn't work, look at the log why
the modes get rejected.
