Another question: where's Gnash?

User-agent: Gnus/5.11 (Gnus v5.11) Emacs/22.1 (gnu/linux)

The release notes said:

> For the first time, the GNU/Linux-i386 binaries include the GNU Gnash
> plugin already installed.

But it doesn't seem to be working for me.

When I visit sites that use Flash (like destandaard.be, demorgen.be, or
independent.ie), a bar appears along the top of the screen saying
"Additional plugins are required to display all media on this page [Install
Missing Plugins...]"

When I click the [Install Missing Plugins], a dialog box appears quickly
"GNU IceCat is now checking for availabl plugins", and then it displays:

"The following plugins are available:
 [v] Gnash 0.8.1"

I click Next, I'm asked to agree to the GPL, I agree and click next.  Then
I'm told:

 "No plugins were installed
    Gnash 0.8.1 Not available [Manual Install]"

If Gnash is already installed in the binary, what do I have to do to enable it?

Thanks again.
