can you build ports/sysutils/pciutils and send an output of lspci -vv for
this card? It looks like driver can't map I/O space for this card.

I don't like class and card values of PCI configuration of your card.
class should be 0x040100 and card should not be zero, i think.

class value is correct here, but card should be 0x00101102 on Audigy.

I think it may be motherboard problem. I can be broken or FreeBSD does not
have full support your PCI chipset. Do you have card=0x0 for every PCI
device on your computer? Can you get PCI device configuration under other
operating system (you can try to boot from any recent Linux Live CD and
run lspci or similar program from it)?
