I can recommend these:-

Definitely work with Linux and BSD. Cheap and they are PS/2.
I have some of the Microsoft mice - they're more expensive, have a
slightly heavier (less flimsy) body, larger pads on the base, a bit
larger, and have a USB connector. They also work just fine with Linux
and BSD - no fiddling needed.

Both mice only need the following if you use an xorg.conf:-

Section "InputDevice"
    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "auto"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
