I think the right thing to do is to only copy data when they say
'install-plugins', however I don't want to deal with it on this
release since it's a ``prettiness'' and ``consistently'' issue and I'm
more concerned about functionality for my first release.

The KDE data files should only be installed with the install-plugin target in plugin/klash. I do think though we should make the install target call install-plugins. Gnash worked this way for years, the only reason I created the install-plugins target was to get around an old problem that broke our automated "make distcheck", and I got tired of it failing. The original bug that caused that problem (installation directories that required one to be root), has been fixed for months, so it's not a problem anymore. As most people build Gnash for the plugin, it makes sense to me that install should also install the plugins like we used to do.
