I just got fed up and upgraded to xf86-input-evdev-2.0.7 and now:
* tilting works as it should (probably due to the ZAxisMapping line)
* Emulate3Button works (so I can at least have the same functionality as 
having button 2)

But still the ButtonMapping doesn't work (I think it was said 2.1 will support 
that), so I have two extra buttons that do nothing and have to emulate 
the "middle" button.

But so far, so good :]

I still can't find 'evtest', so I suppose it's not part of the evdev package.
