did make the update and got a "nice" surprise: graphics didn't do anymore with 
"kldload i915kms.ko" so I thoughta I lost system. built new kernel (minimal), 
built new world, installed it, still graphics in 1024x768. 

Thank god I forgot for a week or so to update the ports and rebuilt the older 
version of drm-current-kmod, surprise, surprise: graphs' back again in 
1367x1280, taking the intel driver without any harm (still flickering 
sometimes but to be adjusted regularly in the compositor of plasma5-settings).

it's this graphical card (quite old!):

pciconf -lv: 
vgapci0 at pci0:0:2:0:	class=0x030000 rev=0x09 hdr=0x00 vendor=0x8086 
device=0x0106 subvendor=0x1028 subdevice=0x0510
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = '2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics         
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA

now problem is solved with "pkg lock drm-current-kmod" but still the question 
why it lost contact to the GPU? Just a version mismatch! dmesg has no 
particular output.

just for information pupose!

nice sunday,
