Oh dear, I seem to have started some sort of (what I believe is termed) "flame war" .

Just for completeness, I wiped all OSs from the laptop in question and installed just NetBSD, then just OpenBSD, then just DragonflyBSD, and finally just FreeBSD (latest versions of) and to confirm, the touchpad didn't work in Net, Open and Free BSD. It worked in DragonflyBSD, but X server crashed on exiting, requiring a reboot.

So, I was mistaken that I'd had more luck with the touchpad in BSDs other than NetBSD (sorry) and the laptop isn't a particularly well-known make.

I therefore declare all BSDs "great"--it's just my laptop. .

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to post.
