The instructions you've given are quite adequate and VERY helpful:
I've never used Wine, and didn't imagine I could resolve the Flash

I should add that I am now running Windows Opera on my FreeBSD 7.0

the non-native character of the browser can't be not noticed, and the
fonts' looks are much inferior to the ones in `linux-opera'.

Thank you very much for the valuable advice!
