[Gnash-dev] Help with building a XPI

I forbade a couple clients of mine from installing proprietary plugins
from A...., but it seems they still need software to read Flash-based
websites :)

Since they don't know about compilation I'm trying to offer them Gnash
binaries (they are running Debian).

In the past I've helped with Gnash backports(.org) but this is still
too complex, firstly because it requires editing sources.list,
secondly because the official Firefox binaries apparently don't know
how about /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, so you need to manually symlink
the plugin in the hidden .mozilla/plugins directory.  In a word: it's
far too complicated for the non-geek user.

So I'd like to experiment with the XPI solution that was mentioned at a while ago.  However I don't know at all where to start!
do you have advice or documentation about it?  How did you compile the
latest .xpi?

(Btw, I read somewhere that there's patents issues with distributing
such binaries: I don't have this problem because I live in Europe.)
