I know. It's not in the current development version of the manual either.
That's why I asked for contribution. A section on environment variables
is completely missing, and the runtime configuration section misses some

While playing a flash movie with gnash you can right-click on the playing
area to access the Gnash menu. Gnash reads ~/.gnashrc when started standalone
and also ~/.gnashpluginrc when started as a plugin. This is by default.
When updating settings trought the GUI, only the last parsed rcfile will
be saved, which is again ~/.gnashrc when started standalone, ~/.gnashpluginrc
when started by the plugin. Again, this is the default.

You can push rcfiles to read using the GNASHRC environment variable.

On every invokation. Will re-read on browser page reload.
