I read these were  the gnash 'dependencies'  from bumf in the gnash tarball.

yes I have looked at firefox 3.07 and  3.08 and very much want to upgrade  but   
I have gtk2.14.3  and this need upgrading too (from what I read on blfs).  
Rather that surgery on the present build,  I was planning to use it   to 
iron-ourt some wrinkles   before a  major update including  clfs-current-dev  
using  kernel 2.6.29,  gcc-4.3.3  , glibc-2.9  etc  later one.  (Mind you 
this too will have is own set of wrinkles)
