It looks like you have specified the new shell incorrectly. Did you enter the full path to zsh when you changed it?

xmonbar must be started by xmonad to work properly. Can you post your ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs as well?

comment FreeBSD Ethernet NIC driver not recognized
That means the re driver is already built into the kernel. I think, if possible, you need to try rebuilding the kernel on the affected system to ensure the version of the driver that gets built in to the kernel is from the updated source files.

Does the re driver show up if you run kldstat? If not, try adding if_re_load="YES" to your /boot/loader.conf and reboot.
