It used to work before compiling your kernel?

Did you back up your old one before building a new one?

did you compile the necessary usb support into the kernel?

did you modify the mouse portion of XF86Config since it was useable?

those are my first 2 thoughts.

xf86config at command line, or you can edit it manually with a text editor (it lives in /etc/X11 usually)
it may be XF86Config-4 also.
