Running Opera (for Linux) on amd64?

Shouldn't it be possible to run linux-opera on FreeBSD 6.0-stable /
Here is what I get:

root at kg-quiet# uname -a

/usr/X11R6/share/linux-opera/bin/opera: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel
80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.0.0, dynamically linked (uses
shared libs), stripped
When I try to run opera (as my normal user), I get:
tingo at kg-quiet$ /usr/X11R6/share/linux-opera/bin/opera
opera: Preference initialization failure. File not found or could not be
opened (-7)

Why doesn't it find the prerefence file? And which preference file?

I note that the native opera for FreeBSD/i386 installs a wrapper script,
but linux-opera doesn't seem to do this.
