"libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libz.so.4" not found, required by "nessusd""
Says nessusd requires libz!
Yes it's trying to download the plugins, but is not able to (file is not downloaded!)

They told me I need to cvsup.  Do I just change the supfiles so they say "RELENG_7" everywhere?

what about that consarnt "CHANGE_THIS" thing?
elf_bin

Who's they?
Usually libraries are linked at compile time.  So when a binary requires something from a library it just calls it.  But if the binary can't find the library, how could it call it?
"libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libz.so.4" not found, required by "nessusd"" suggests to me that the ELF (binary "format" if you like) library that is trying to find libz but can't.  I don't have a *BSD box to hand to try and find the library, but in Linux you can do ldd <path_to_nessusd> which'll list all libraries that are linked in the binary (should also work on *BSD).  Does libz.so.4 exist anyway on your system?
I don't see a "CHANGE_THIS" in your postings, is something missing?

I screwed the other one in before but I didn't understand the software mount.

acch.  I guess I didn't really try to follow that up.
