After sending the email, I kept working on it and discovered the info from
linuxpluginwrapper about libmap.conf.

Using /etc/libmap.conf, I can run native mozilla and native firefox from a
command line and get no messages about missing libraries.

I have the following ports:

I removed flashplugin-firefox because it only supports really old flash
version.  The linux-flashplugin correctly displayed flash on
http://www.t-zones.co.uk/newsexpress for example.

I don't know if linux-realplayer is actually found by mozilla or firefox
because about:plugins says:
Helix DNA Plugin: RealPlayer G2 Plug-In Compatible

    File name: nphelix.so
    Helix DNA Plugin: RealPlayer G2 Plug-In Compatible version
 built with gcc 3.2.0 on Dec 14 2004

If that's player 10, it won't play anything I've found goint to real player's
home page.

When I try to open a pdf with firefox, it launches acrobat, but it freezes
"Initializing ewh.api". This pdf is in my home directory and is a version 1.2
pdf. No error is displayed on the console.

When I try to open that same pdf with mozilla, I get:
/usr/local/Acrobat5/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread: error while loading
 shared libraries: /usr/local/lib/libartsdsp.so.0: ELF file OS ABI invalid

i386 FreeBSD 4.11-STABLE
