Sorry about that. When I installed google-earth from ports there were 
installed following as  a dependency packages:

linux-XFree86-libs- XFree86 libraries, Linux binary
linux_base-8-8.0_15 Base set of packages needed in Linux mode (for 
linux_dri-4.4.0     Binary Linux DRI libraries for 3D hardware

Which one is "good one" then? I thought it could pick up the good one 
during the installation as a dependency. Maybe I'm wrong here or 
google-earth port should be updated to use good linux_base port.

Google-earth complained using OpenGL with software emulation.  FYI, I 
have i945G board with integrated graphic card.
