linux compatibility issues


I was wondering, to install all of the plugins for firefox, and run linux binaries in general, It was suggested on BSD's site to use the port linux_base-f4. This port does not exist on my system (FreeBSD 7) and I already upgraded my ports through portupgrade and portsnap. Quite frankly, being new to BSD the FreeBSD port site escapes me. Is there a package I can install that will give me this port? The only ports close to this I have on my system are linux_base-f7 and linux_base-f8.

# whereis linux_base-fc4
linux_base-fc4: /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-fc4

That's the one I have installed on my 6.2 system, but it is available in the Ports tree for my 7.0 system (that's where the quote is from). I am running a couple server daemons with that, which at the time I could only find as linux binaries.
