this second setup is good to start from, as it already works in console
imho, the way you want to use gpmdata is wrong. it is one fifo, and you
repeat two different signals through it. my guess would be to repeat both
mice through gpmdata, but in the same protocol. X won't even notice the
actions come from two different mice, so you'll only need one
"inputdevice" section. you might try a config like this:
/usr/sbin/gpm -m /dev/psaux -t autops2 -Rps2 -M -m /dev/input/mice -t
 imps2 -Rps2

Section "InputDevice"
 Identifier      "GPM Mouse"
 Driver          "mouse"
 Option          "CorePointer"
 Option          "Device"                "/dev/gpmdata"
 Option          "Protocol"              "PS/2"
 Option          "Emulate3Buttons"       "true"
 Option          "ZAxisMapping"          "4 5"

Section "ServerLayout"
 Identifier      "Default Layout"
 Screen          "Default Screen"
 InputDevice     "Generic Keyboard"
 InputDevice     "GPM Mouse"

just guessing, but you might give it a try
good luck,
