Hi. I think it would be correct to install it using the port. Sometimes the
system cannot download the file; namely I had the same problem with this
port. You can download the file manually, and then replace the temporary
file created in /usr/ports/distfiles/flashplugin7xxx/... with the correct
one. Then go to /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7 and issue make install
clean again. The system checks first whether the file is in the distfiles;
if it is not the case, it will fetch it.
