sysct/kernel variables error

I recently upgraded to unstable (in fact, I wiped the hard drive and partitioned more room for linux) so now I have the luxury of XFree86 4.2, however my mouse button emulation is not working.
I tried setting:

but at boot a message displays saying "Setting kernel variables.error: /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid/[etc.] is an unknown key. mouse_button_emulation is then reset to 0, and the other two values are at their default as well. I've entered those lines in sysctl.conf as well as trying echo 88 > mouse_button2_keycode for example, but nothing seems to work.

This is a very perplexing problem and I can find no mention of anything like this in the archives, so if anyone has any insight it would be greatly appreciated.
