Actually, yes. I was stepping through the source at the weekend, and found
that the core dump can be averted on FreeBSD by applying the following patch
to /server/drivers/port.h (0.4.3 source):

That gets LCDd up and running in hd44780 mode, but there seem to be a number
of issues with the LCDproc client too.
