Well, not everything from your list. I have currently

root at vas:~ # pkg info -a | egrep 'bhyve|uefi'
grub2-bhyve-0.40_4             Grub-emu loader for bhyve
uefi-edk2-bhyve-0.1,1          UEFI-EDK2 firmware for bhyve
uefi-edk2-bhyve-csm-0.1,1      UEFI-EDK2 firmware for bhyve with CSM
vm-bhyve-1.2.3                 Management system for bhyve virtual machines
root at vas:~ #

bhyve-firmware: is a metaport for uefi-edk2-bhyve and uefi-edk2-bhyve-csm,
I already have them both installed. But no harm installing it also.

bhyve-rc-3: "FreeBSD RC script for starting bhyve guests in tmux" - I
definitely don't need it because I use vm-bhyve for VM management.

libhyve-remote- well, maybe this one is the culprit. We shall see
tonight if its presence makes any difference.
