Just a followup, I finally figured this out.  It wasn't a bug in
FreeBSD, but rather there is a problem with the php5-pdo_oci and
php5-oci ports.  A patch in the port modifies the linker path, and for
some reason having either of those loaded breaks php5-pdo_dblib's

I'm going to let the maintainer(s) know.

Thanks for all of your help,
