The line is for the X font server xfs. Do

apt-get install xfs

if you want to use it.

Please check your config file and see if the mouse device is set to
/dev/psaux. You can reconfigure XFree with debconf. Type

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

It would be easier to say what exactly the problem is if you gave us more
information. The InputDevice section(s) of your XFree86Config(-4) would
be helpful, as well as information from your XFree log file
(/var/log/XFree86.0.log) regarding the mouse.
