If you're on 7-current: no chance to run linuxpluginwrapper ATM (work  
is done to come up with some userland linux compatibility stuff:  
"morphing linux objects to FreeBSD ones..." one could say, but it's  
not finished yet AFAIK).

If you on anything else: your libmap.conf is out of date, please  
compare with the example provided by linuxpluginwrapper  

Background: Linuxpluginwrapper does not need any linux_base stuff. It  
comes with some shims which wrap FreeBSD native lib calls to Linux  
ones. The linux code is referencing libpthread.so.0 (and other libs)  
and libmap.conf is mapping the libs to the glue code. The linux  
plugins are calling the wrappers in the glue code and the glue code is  
calling FreeBSD native code.
