Ok I think I've figured this out. gst-inspect shows that although I have gstreamer-ffmpeg installed, including codecs like ffdec_flv, i am missing the codecs that configure stated I was missing (ffdec_flashsv ffdec_vp6f ffdec_flashsv ffdec_vp6). Since I am running Debian etch, it seems that the built package for gstreamer-ffmpeg on etch was simply compiled without including these codecs.
The statement "Please install the gstreamer-ffmpeg for Gstreamer" is a little misleading, since it is not necessarily gstreamer-ffmpeg that is always missing, but sometimes certain codecs that gnash expects from it despite the fact that gstreamer-ffmpeg is installed.

...my question still remains though. I can't figure out what could be wrong on my end. Might there be something wrong with the configure scripts?

Subject: [Gnash-dev] not finding gstreamer-ffmpeg files
This is on the 0.8.3 release.
After running autogen.sh, I tried to run configure with the following
./configure --enable-media=gst --enable-renderer=agg --enable-kparts
But got the following output
GLib flags are: -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include
GLib libs are: -lglib-2.0
ATK flags are: -I/usr/include/atk-1.0 -I/usr/include/glib-2.0
ATK libs are: -latk-1.0 -lgobject-2.0 -lgmodule-2.0 -ldl
Your Gstreamer installation is missing these codecs:
ffdec_flashsv ffdec_vp6f ffdec_flashsv ffdec_vp6
Please install the gstreamer-ffmpeg for Gstreamer
Gstreamer flags are: -pthread -I/usr/include/gstreamer-0.10
Gstreamer libs are: -lgstreamer-0.10 -lgobject-2.0 -lgmodule-2.0
-ldl -l\gthread-2.0 -lxml2 -lglib-2.0
But I have gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg installed! Including the good, bad, and
ugly plugins. gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg library is in
/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstffmpeg.so . All of the gstreamer so's seem
to be in either /usr/lib or /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/.
The reference manual mentions a nonexisting debian package
gstreamer0.8-ffmpeg-dev -- is the fact that I don't have something like
this the problem?
