I think it can be useful for someone.

It worked for me 8-)

Here's what I did:
I installed opera from ports.
I did kldload linux.
I installed linuxpluginwrapper.
I installed linux-opera.
I installed mozilla.

I configured flash in mozilla as described in the handbook. It worked. I
configured flash in konqueror as described here It worked.
Flash in linux-opera worked too.

In a native FreeBSD Opera 8.50 I did the following:
Tools --> Preferences --> Advanced --> Content --> Plug-in options... -->
Change path...

I have three paths there:
(I disabled this path /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins)

I don't remember whether I clicked "Find new..." in "Plug-in options...".

Finally I got two detected plugins:
NS4PlugInProxy - /usr/X11R6/share/opera/plugins/
Shockwave Flash - /usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin6/

Then i restarted Opera and went to to see that
linux-flashplayer6 works with native Opera 8.50.
