I am seeing a similar, if not the same, problem with firefox.

The latest print/acroread port seems to have changed and on a make 
deinstall it seems to fail.
/usr/ports/print/acroread7 # make deinstall && make reinstall
===>  Deinstalling for print/acroread7
===>   acroread7-7.0.1 has a different PREFIX: /compat/linux, skipping
On make install with FORCE_PKG_REGISTER it only seems to install it in

What I ended up with after a portupgrade -a on both 6.0 and 7.0 machines is
# ls -l `locate nppdf.so`
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel      68 Sep 11 12:10 
/usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/nppdf.so -> 
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  878568 Oct 11 17:32 
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  878568 Oct 11 17:32 

Due to the upgrade the first link is blank and I haven't been able to 
get the 
to work with firefox yet.

Any suggestions appreciated.
