Logitech MX700 mouse configuration

    or anyone else who has successfully set up all the buttons on a
    Logitech MX700 mouse under xorg

The information I've found on this subject has been fragmentary and
incomplete. One of the best sources was suggested by Matt (roboticgolem)
at http://www.linux-gamers.net/modules/wfsection/print.php?articleid=46.

Unfortunately, both RHEL4 and FC3 flunk that site's first test that
checks to see if their Xservers are "ready for evdev":

     # strings /usr/X11R6/bin/X | grep evdev

Multiple sources also quote a need to make one or more 'pointer = x x x
x...' settings, but the methods and numeric arguments are always

Others describe ZAxisMapping option settings in xorg.conf, but their
numeric arguments vary.

Still others say you have to install imwheel, but there seems to be some
contention about this.

Is there one current and authoritative place that explains all this and
lays out once and for all how to set up all the buttons on an MX700
mouse under xorg?
