I've been hit by what might be this one, too. I'm not using packages.

In my case the solution was found here:

"The Rust ecosystem currently uses pre-ino64 syscalls, so building lang/rust without COMPAT_FREEBSD11 is not going to work."

So, check if You have COMPAT_FREEBSD11 in the kernel, and if not, then that it the cause.
(Not sure what has to be rebuilt, besides the kernel)

Thank you. I'm still running the stock kernel configuration, so COMPAT_FREEBSD11 should still be set. I think this is something else.

One thing I've noticed is that anything OpenGL crashes, but I think it's a different issue because Firefox won't even run in Xephyr.

I figured it out! Finally!

pkg install dante induces the issue. pkg remove dante fixes the issue.
