Well, it might work with a FreeBSD/i386 webbrowser if you use
something like the pluginwrapper port, although I'm not sure how ld-
elf32.so.1 interacts with libmap (does it use /etc/libmap.conf or a
separate /etc/libmap32.conf?). I'm fairly certain you can't use
Linux/i386 plugins with a FreeBSD/amd64 browser however.
