Ok, I just attempted to get things working, but the ports system is 
complaining about a stale dependency between the linuxpluginwrapper and 
linux_base-7.X.  So, I attempted to install this under the emulators 
section, and the port is labeled as IGNORE.  Historically I've always 
tried to resolve this since it inhibits running some of the helpful 
utilities like pkg_* and port*.
