Try the one-line perl example in joy(4) to see if your joystick works,
for some value of 'works' .. ie actually logs changing axis values and
button press/release status.
I don't think there's any specific support for joysticks, you pretty
much have to write your own. With what program did you hope to use it?
Years ago I wrote a little rexx program that read (pseudo) joystick X,Y
values and button (actually relay switch) values for detecting and
controlling shutdown conditions for a simple-interface Liebert UPS,
using the standard joystick / MIDI port on a couple of ISA cards.

kernel, not kldloaded - but that was way back around FreeBSD 3.3 ..
