The port www/linux-f10-flashplugin needs linux -f10- ports. The latter
are defaults for FreeBSD-8.x and later. You can use them at 7.2
(7.2-STABLE is preferred). For more unformation take a look at
/usr/ports/UPDATING "20090401: AFFECTS: users of linux Fedora 8
infrastructure ports" (it deals with non default f8 ports, f10
are the same with "f10" value). HTH

Please, keep in mind that those ports are not defaults for 7.x.
