This problem was resolved some time back (through an update I believe) but is now back. No error message is registered in /var/log/messages or any other log. However, combing through the output on TTY0, I found this:
Starting dbus
Shared object '' not found required by 'dbus-daemon'
/etc/rc: WARNING: failed to start dbus

After system is booted, form any TTY*, "# service dbus onestart" results in normal startup. Not setting any dbus_flags and not using gdm_enable.

# pkg info -l expat > expat-2.1.0_2:
(files separately confirmed with ls /usr/local/lib/*expat*)
