I have firefox-bin-flash and opera-plugins working properly on NetBSD 3.1
with X11 from xsrc/.  I also have the flashplugin working properly in a
native seamonkey (via nspluginwrapper which I compiled manually) on both
NetBSD 3.1 and NetBSD-current.

Another user (on irc) suggested to split the packages and keep flash7
packages in parallel to the flash9 ones.
