Keyboard config is still handled via the xkb subsystem in X.

/usr/share/doc/console-setup/README.gz has the details on
/etc/default/console-setup or /etc/default/keyboard

Mouse on the console still uses gpm, with the config file /etc/gpm.conf

As for the other file, the copy in /usr/share/ is always the original copy
of the default version of the file. It should be copied to /etc/ and modified.
In this case it becomes /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf
