I attempted to install the www/linux-flashplayer7 plugin on FreeBSD 7.1-PRERELEASE and it got stuck cycling through the list of internet addresses attempting to download a number of files that it needed for emulators/linux_base-fc4. 

A few files were able to be obtained, but most of them seem to be missing from the addresses in /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.sites.mk

attempt to install or build the linux flashplayer port under FreeBSD 7.1/Beta2.
searched for the 'fedora' section of ports/Mk/bsd.sites.mk (in vi: /fedora)
edited the first line as follows:

ftp://ftp.univie.ac.at/systems/linux/fedora/core/%SUBDIR%/ \

Because of the way make parses files adding that as a new line didn't work (whitespace issues I didn't know how to work around), so I simply edited the first line instead.
