Touch screen does not work for my Toshiba dynabookN51 with 10.3Release.

The PC-BSD handbook says

2.2.2. Touch Screens
PC-BSD® should automatically detect USB-based touch screen devices. If your display is USB and is not auto-detected, send the output of usbconfig and your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file using the Report a bug tool.

but I think this instruction is inappropriate because setting for touch screen driver(synaptics driver) is done in /usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf, so the /etc/X11/xorg.conf is irrevalant. Instead I attach here /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /var/log/messages along with the output of usbconfig. IMHO, the real problem is that a device for the touch screen is not created. This may be a genuin FreeBSD10.3 problem, not a PC-BSD problem, but anyway I want to know a bugfix or a workaround for this.
Also, I hope the above instruction in the PC-BSD handbook will be rewritten.
