Hmm. I have no idea... but: do You have a working framebuffer of any 
kind? As I wrote, I tested my solution only with:

% grep fb /var/run/dmesg.boot 
intelfb0 at i915drmkms0
intelfb0: framebuffer at 0xffffd880ac669000, size 1920x1080, depth 32,
stride 7680
wsdisplay0 at intelfb0 kbdmux 1: console (default, vt100 emulation),
using wskbd0

If you don't have DRM-compatible hardware You may want to double-check

There may be a issue with device rights - but by default mlterm-fb is
installed with suid-root, so it may not be case (my current user is
in kmem and wheel groups and has rights to write do /dev/dri/card0,
for example).
