Q: Did the variable variable syntax change in php v 5.6x?

I am aware it has changed in v 7.0

That is because the variable variable references are failing,

I have code that has been working fine until I got a copy of the site
and installed it on a local  FreeBSD server with php v 5.6.0

There are references to an array containing array names as strings
that are supposed to fetch the values in the arrays indicated by array
name as a string.

Further, these are associative arrays that can be used as a database to
access values by string index.

$_subLst = ${self::$_arrayNames[$_dep]};
print "sub: ".$_subLst."\n"; //// $_subLst is empty

Is a header being put out? Something like:

    header ('Content-Type: text/css; charset=utf-8');

For the css, if there is something being sent, yes, but the way it works
is the source for the css is an index.php script that processes get requests
attactched. When there is no get request, nothing is sent. I solved that
problem to send a css error comment so the css error is solved but the
variable variable syntax is still an issue.
