Current version of claws in FreeBSD ports is 3.8.1 (upgraded 5 weeks ago). Update your port tree and reinstall (not sure if PC-BSD works exactly like FreeBSD, usually this would be "portsnap fetch extract / portsnap fetch update")

You might also want to open a ticket in PC-BSD and ask them to add the most common claws plugins to AppCafe.
