  Actually, head should fine on FreeBSD, at least it did for me this
morning. :-) See my notes at:

  Those options have been depreciated, and replaced by
--enable-media=gst. Currently only GST works, ffmpeg should be fixed
shortly. The MAD support is no longer used directly, as there is MP3
support in both ffmpeg and gstreamer. MAD support was a leftover from
the dawn of time...

  I'm currently working on BSD packaging support, so I'd appreciate it
if you'd give me a hand there, since I already made Gnash build cleanly
for you. :-)

  Anyway, by default, use no configure options what so ever, and Gnash
typically builds for every system I've tried it on. Most of the config
options are more for porting and development. Often packagers get crazy
with supplying every config option to Gnash they can find, which often
leaves the result in odd states that may have never been tested together
explicitly. For examples of how to do it right, look in gnash/packaging.
Both the .deb and .rpm packaging support files mostly only set install
