When firefox3 was first added to the ports collection, I had noticed
this problem with firefox3 (after using sysutils/libchk), but I didn't
have this problem with the firefox 2.  A look at the difference
between the www/firefox and www/firefox3 Makefiles showed that
firefox3 was missing this:

LDFLAGS+= -Wl,-rpath,${PREFIX}/lib/${MOZ_RPATH}

After adding this line to the ports Makefile, and rebuilding the port,
these libraries are now showing as found in the ldd output.
