Yes, I did.  It seems that the perl5.24 port was damaged
during one of the black screens of death events.  Removing
perl5.24 and re-installing seems to have fixed the help2man

I can 'kldload joy.ko'.  If I try to load any of drm.ko,
drm2.ko, or i915kms.ko.  Instant lock-up.  I have no 
idea how to get any more information about the lock-up.

This laptop, Dell Latitude D530, has worked very well with
FreeBSD with sources from Jan 31th and earlier.  Something
in the last month has been broken.
