I run FreeBSD64 with epiphany and flashplugin7... and it works without
and very fast...

All I did is  update the ports tree using portsnap
portsnap fetch [extract | update]  and then
install the nspluginwrapper, linux-flashplugin7  using portinstall
portinstall -p nspluginwrapper linux-flashplugin7  
than I insert a line in /etc/xprofile.....

nspluginwrapper -v -a -i

so everytime I log-in (using gdm)   it updates the plugin wrapper....
It just works...
About the flashplugin9...  it does not work still... 
I am thinking another aproach... based on opensolaris...
somewhere in future (soon, I hope) sun will make flashplugin work
on opensolaris... and with a binary emulation, will make things work in
FreeBSD too.  I will receive the dvd from sun soon, and will give it a
to evaluate the possibilities... A previous iso image from internet
very good..   in my notebook...
