Yes, if you installed from disk, you got what was on the disk. You
need to cvsup your ports collection, then install Opera from the port.
If you aren't familiar with that, read Chapter 4 of the FreeBSD
handbook. See http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/ports-using.html
In short, you will probably end up doing something like:
pkg_add -r cvsup-without-gui
cvsup -h cvsup.FreeBSD.org /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile
make install && make clean
But read the Handbook section for more explanation.
