Well, that is the purpose of nspluginwrapper, as far as I understand.

from pkg-descr:
The nspluginwrapper is an Open Source compatibility plugin for Netscape 4
(NPAPI) plugins. That is, it enables you to use plugins on platforms they were
not built for. For example, you can use the Adobe Flash plugin on Linux/x86_64,
NetBSD and FreeBSD platforms.

===>  Configuring for nspluginwrapper-
host OS                   freebsd
host CPU                  amd64
host big endian           no
target OS                 linux
target CPU                i386
