Mozilla plugins broken after port upgrade

Yesterday I cvsup'ed and upgraded my ports, using the procedure I've
been using for quite some time. After it was done, most of my Mozilla
plug-ins no longer work. I did not upgrade my operating system at that
time, since I'm already at the latest patchlevel.
The specific issues are with acroread7, flash and mplayer-plugin. All of
these worked as plug-ins before the upgrade, but now none of them do.
Acroread7 and mplayer work fine in their standalone application
incarnations, but not as plug-ins. Curiously, the java plug-in still
works fine. In Mozilla, about:plugins shows java and the mplayer stuff,
but not anything pertaining to Acrobat or PDFs.
Here is what I've done to try to fix this:
tripel# mv /etc/libmap.conf /etc/libmap.conf.old
/etc/libmap.conf - both the new and old versions - have an entry like
# Acrobat7 with Mozilla/Firebird/Galeon/Epiphany/Konqueror/Kazehakase
libc.so.6 exists; it's a symlink to libc-2.3.2.so, both in
/usr/compat/linux/lib. However, the path shown in [square brackets] does
not exist. Does it need to? man libc.conf doesn't say anything about
those square bracket entries. On the off chance, I tried creating that
heirarchy of directories and touch'ing nppdf.so, but no love so I got
rid of it.
$ ls /usr/local/lib/pluginwrapper
acrobat.so flash7.so java3d.so oci8.so realplayer.so
flash6.so jai.so java3d_snd.so pips.so
A search of the list archive turned up a post saying that you have to
have linprocfs mounted *before* doing the *install* on
linuxpluginwrapper. I made that happen; relevant df output is
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
linprocfs 4 4 0 100% /usr/compat/linux/proc
I then deinstalled the following via 'make deinstall', then did 'make
reinstall' in this order:
Question: Can someone point me to a writeup of what I need to do, in
what order, to repair this?
Thanks very much.
