I'm not the blender maintainer but I compile the svn versions regularly 
and I'm the maintainer for openimageio which is a recent addition that 
blender uses for the cycles render engine. I use 9.0 amd64. I've just 
dusted off the old P4 and installed a clean version of 8.2, updated the 
ports tree and started compiling everything, I'll see if I can get the 
same issue tomorrow.

I'll assume you have your ports tree up to date and are building the 
latest version.

Have you had an earlier version of blender running?

The only reference to libirml I can find is as part of Intels compiler 
package and it doesn't appear to be a part that the freebsd ports 
version of icc installs. One guess is that you may be using icc or have 
in the past leaving a dependency that was built with icc.

While libirml seems to have some relation to tbb I don't see any 
reference within devel/tbb. graphics/openimageio brings in the 
dependency for tbb so you could try turning off the CYCLES option in 
blender to turn off that dependency. libirml may also be related to 
openmp so try turning off OPENMP as well.

Maybe try turning off some other options to help pinpoint where it comes 
from. CAMERATRACK CARVE CYCLES OCEANSIM are the newest additions.
