linux-gtk2 port too old for Linux Firefox 3 binary

The version of GTK in FreeBSD's linux-gtk2 port is 2.6.10.

I (and others, I expect) tend to run the Linux build of Firefox, so
that I can use Linux releases of the Flash player.

The new Firefox 3 release fails when run against linux-gtk2 from the
GTK port, though; it complains that Firefox 3 requires at least GTK

The port's maintainer is listed as freebsd-emulation. Might someone
who tends this port be up for updating the port to bring GTK 2.10 or
newer into linux-gtk2?

Many thanks,
