I've had one for quite some time now.  It works fine with xmame, you just
need to pass in the parameter that tells it to use the use the XArcade
button mappings.  There's a file (xarcade.cfg ?) that comes with the
source distributions of xmame (I haven't found it in the binary
distributions) that declares the buttons, and the command line argument is
"-ctrlr xarcade" (pass in "-ctrlr_directory" to specify the location of
the file if necessary).

Works marvelously for my favorite game, Mortal Kombat II.
