psaux module won't auto-install

I've compiled both sound support and psaux as modules in my kernel
and have enabled kerneld to (as I understand it) load them when needed.

And the sound module is getting loaded.  If I use xaudio at a time
when /sbin/lsmods says sound isn't installed the sound card works and
a subsequent call to lsmods shows sound has been installed.

But if I try to startx when psaux isn't installed the X server refuses
to launch and complains of lack of a mouse.  '/sbin/insmod psaux'
works as expected, as does a subsequent call to startx.

What's the difference between these modules that one loads automatically
and the other doesn't?  Can it be fixed?
