no idea about /usr/port/emulators/linux_base-8 which that article talks
about, its not in my ports tree. but you can use linux_base-f7  if you
set compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16
however its still a work in progress and wont always work as intended,
for example it works fine on my laptop
[EMAIL PROTECTED] -Ix linux_base
linux_base-f7-7     Base set of packages needed in Linux mode (for
i386/amd64)
[EMAIL PROTECTED] compat.linux.osrelease
compat.linux.osrelease: 2.6.16

and I can use acrobat and other linux binaries, however my desktop at
home would not start acrobat reader using compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.16
and linux_base-f7-7, and I had to go back to linux_base-fc-4_10 and
compat.linux.osrelease: 2.4.2.
