Hi. I think it would be correct to install it using the port. Sometimes the system cannot download the file; namely I had the same problem with this port. You can download the file manually, and then replace the temporary file created in /usr/ports/distfiles/flashplugin7xxx/... with the correct one. Then go to /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7 and issue make install clean again. The system checks first whether the file is in the distfiles; if it is not the case, it will fetch it.
