Any way you slice it, I cannot make this work.  I tried

  make install-plugin

and started with an empty LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and then again with
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$prefix/lib/gnash.  The complaints about missing
symbols disappear like this, but nevertheless the resulting Fx
cannot play any flash movies, eg from Youtube.

This is with a 3.6.x line Firefox built from source.  I am trying
to investigate the extent to which using Gnash rather than Flashplayer
in Firefox makes it easier to debug Flash-related problems in Fx,
but so far I am failing to get to first base.

My Fx is running on a vnc server, not on a real X display.  Would
that make any difference?

"make install-plugin" installs a single file,,
which is only 339k, and a significant part of that is Dwarf3 debug syms.
So it can't have much functionality compared to the rest of gnash,
considering that (eg) is nearly 92MB in size.
Does dlopen/dlsym the rest of the shared objects
from their location in $prefix/lib/gnash ?
