That port is borked, here's what you have to do to get it working:

## Workaround for broken port linuxpluginwrapper.

## Before building linuxpluginwrapper:

rm -R /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_linux_plugins

ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_linux_plugins

## Build linuxpluginwrapper:

cd /usr/ports/www/linuxpluginwrapper

make -DWITH_PLUGINS install clean

## or upgrade:

portupgrade -vm -DWITH_PLUGINS linuxpluginwrapper

## Remove symlink (will break Mozilla).

rm -rf /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_linux_plugins

## Fix acroread:

rm -rf /usr/local/bin/acroread	# If upgrade.

mv  /usr/local/bin/acroread7  /usr/local/bin/acroread

rm -rf /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/nppdf.so

-s  /usr/local/lib/acroread/usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/Browser/intellinux/nppdf.so /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/nppdf.so

## Change path to nppdf.so in /etc/libmap.conf:

# Acrobat7 with Mozilla/Firebird/Galeon/Epiphany/Konqueror
libc.so.6			pluginwrapper/acrobat.so

## Acroread now works properly in browser.
## Helix plugin does not work with Firefox or Mozilla at this time. 
## Flash 6.0 works without modification.
## Flash7 is VERY unstable and will crash Firefox (possibly Mozilla).

## Launch browser and type "about:plugins" without the quotes to check that 
plugins are enabled.
