So did I. When I run firefox then, I get an error message as follows:

freebsdangel# firefox
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library 
/usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/libflashplayer.so [Shared object 
"libdl.so.2" not found, required by "libflashplayer.so"]

But the library is existing:

freebsdangel# find / -name libdl.so.2

And even adjusting the path does not help:

freebsdangel# setenv PATH "${PATH}:/usr/compat/linux/lib"

The result is the same:

So basically the question is:
How can I tell FreeBSD where to find the requested lib??
