I can't tell from your message whether you have the right format in
/etc/sysctl.conf.  It should be:

dev.mac_hid.mouse_button_emulation = 1
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button2_keycode = 88
dev.mac_hid.mouse_button3_keycode = 125

anything else will be an unknown key.

Speaking of which, does anyone know what sysctl keys I should use for
setting cpufreq?  I can do it on the command line with echo but I
haven't figured out what to say in sysctl.
