Hi Robert,
I don't have any Yubikeys but have you tried checking the permissions of /dev/uhid0* and /dev/ugen1.4 (which will be a symlink to usb/1.4.0) ?
You can chmod them for now and then if that works have a devd conf or devfs rule which sets the permissions appropriately when the device is connected.

If permissions are the problem it would be nice to see if the error message can be improved too :)
