I have 1.33.1 on a Debian 4.0, but that's one of the machines
I never built gnash on.

Main development host is an Ubuntu 8.10 with 1.34.1

Both Debian 4.0 and Ubuntu 8.10 does have a libboost-serialization-dev

Would be nice to hear from embedded system guys, as that's where an
additional separate library might hurt more. For me simplicity and
maintainability are good. Would we get an easier switch to by-pointer
PropertyList with that ?
