 It is a ports bug.
 Having things build and then NOT work _is_ a ports bug.  :)
 Please reopen and FIX port.
 Here are the steps to get it working (from freebsd-questions):
 # Run these commands as root:
   sysctl compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.20
   echo "compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.20" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
   cd  /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-f7 && make
   pkg_delete linux_\*
   make install
   rm /usr/ports/distfiles/flashplugin/fp7_archive.zip
   pkg_delete linux-flashplugin\*
   cd /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7 && make
   make install
   cd /usr/ports/www/nspluginwrapper/ && make
   make install
   portupgrade -O linux-\*
 # return to your user account (stop being root)
   nspluginwrapper -a -v -i
 # the output should look like this:
 Auto-install plugins from /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin
 Looking for plugins in /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin
 Install plugin /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so
    into /home/rudy/.mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
