Default Why does the opera need linux emulation ?

Code:
$make search key=opera
...
Port: opera-10.11p2
...
R-deps: emulators/fedora/base
It seems that opera doesnot need linux emulation on freebsd .

Sincerely!

Because there is NATIVE version of Opera for FreeBSD while the is not for OpenBSD, so You can either use FreeBSD compatibility or Linux compatibility on OpenBSD to have working Opera.

Opera is a closed source, proprietary program. The OpenBSD port does not build source code, it installs a binary module from Opera's distribution servers. Distribution of a package would violate their licensing.

Correct me if I am wrong - I was looking into the freebsd emulation and there is no mention of it post 4.9

Is freebsd emulation still supported?

No, it was pulled after 4.9. From the cvsweb attic:
Code:
Revision 1.21
Tue Apr  5 12:50:15 2011 UTC (11 months, 2 weeks ago) by guenther
Branches: MAIN
CVS tags: HEAD
FILE REMOVED
Changes since revision 1.20: +2 -2  lines

Push COMPAT_FREEBSD in front of a whale.  Buggy, out of date, no 
one has been weeding it, and it makes life harder.  

Toasts of Brennivin for its passing from many; diff ok henning@

The relevant manpage had been compat_freebsd(8). It is no longer present nor is anything returned from the following:

$ man -k freebsd
