Good luck with that. Adobe doesn't care about FreeBSD. Never did,
and probably never will. They don't even care about 64-bit Linux users...

If you absolutely need Flash on FreeBSD, I'd suggest you install
VirtualBox, and inside VirtualBox a Flash-supported OS, like
OpenSolaris (that's what I do when I absolutely need Flash support).

It's not the cleanest solution, but at least, I don't have to clutter
my FreeBSD system with A LOT of Linux dependencies just to
get a barely working Flash.
