This is exactly what I did miuns the gcc-2.95.x bit, and Flash works, but
not well.  The fonts are all garbled.  I noticed (couldn't help but
notice) the warning about ttfonts that the Flashplayer README
contains.  Is installing ttfonts just a matter of setting up fonts
according to the customizing X section of the BLFS book, or is there
something else involved?
