No, not a big deal, but it's handy, and it really should work.  Is
(fboundp 'mwheel-install) true?  If so, run (mwheel-install).  If not, I
guess you need find a copy of mwheel and load/require it.  Used to be
that XFree had a 5-button mouse model, with the two scrolling actions
treated as mouse-4 and mouse-5.  I assume that's still true. So in emacs
it's just a matter of binding those buttons to calls to scroll-down  and
scroll-up.

Middle-click is pretty crucial everywhere in X11 :)
