FYI, I downloaded the FreeBSD version of Opera from Opera, replaced all
occurrences of OpenBSD with DragonFly in install.sh, ran it, and it works.
There was one complaint about plugins.
Cool! The complaint you get about the plugins is due to the fact the 
Opera FreeBSD build machine uses a different set of libraries than us 
(and the latest release of FreeBSD).  I have a library you can try if 
you wish.

IMO, the biggest problem I had with the *BSD Opera is getting it to use 
any other plugins (flash, lava, realplayer, etc.).  I ended up using 
linux-opera.  While it "works" I must admit to feeling some shame having 
to employ this workaround just to be able to handle all the "needed 
components" of the web.
