Yes, of course it's upstream. But I would expect packagers to detect
similar problems and do something about them. (like refusing to
package unless the upstream maintainer provides correct versioning?).

Do you see other options ?
How could Gnash (or whichever other package using AGG) detect 
availability of a specific feature otherwise ?

Actually, as I write this mail a voice in my head tells me
gnash is not actually checking version but grepping in headers,
can you confirm Gnash would build with AGG renderer ("2.4" on fedora core?).
