Understood.

Actually, gpm was not running until I manually started it.  The rc2.d
symbolic link is still there, and the script still works, so either some
timeout occurs or the environment is different at boot time (S20).

When I started it, gpm highlighted a random couple of lines. However,
moving or clicking the mouse has no effect.

Yes and no.  Knoppix actually didn't show the interrupt until I used the
mouse in X, so it seems to get allocated on demand there.  This is not
behavior I have ever seen before.  However, it is odd that the interrupt
never seems to get registered.

My current .config (no initrd) contains the following
$ grep MOUSE .config
CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV=m
CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_SCREEN_X=1024
CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_SCREEN_Y=768
CONFIG_BUSMOUSE=m
CONFIG_ATIXL_BUSMOUSE=m
CONFIG_LOGIBUSMOUSE=m
CONFIG_MS_BUSMOUSE=m
CONFIG_MOUSE=m
CONFIG_PSMOUSE=y
CONFIG_82C710_MOUSE=m
CONFIG_MK712_MOUSE=m
CONFIG_USB_MOUSE=m
