Hi. Here is ebuild that supports wheel emulation for new trackpoints where trackpoint buttons are integrated into touchpad:

this isn't covered by synaptics?  https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Synaptics <--- eh?

Evdev has option "EmulateWheelButton" to emulate mouse wheel when middle button is pressed. It doesn't work on new thinkpads where trackpoint buttons are integrated to touchpad because synaptics and evdev are two different drivers and can't communicate.

 

Here is the related bug report:
