I didn't use the ports. I just got the tarball,
untarballed it, did a make, make install, which
basically put lib/
into /usr/local/lib .   Then followed the directions
in the info file which entailed 

cp /usr/local/lib/flash/ \

cp /usr/local/lib/flash/ShockwaveFlash.class \

and putting


at the top of the file /usr/X11R6/bin/mozilla

just below the shebang

But I guess some more magic is required that the ports
takes care of. I did see in the ports makefile there
is a post patch section so like you say maybe some
patching is required. I was under the understanding
that this program was written specifialy for freebsd,
and thought it would not need patching. Well guess I
will use the port. Thanks for the help.
