(Thanks to Geert Hendrickx and Shigeki UNO for pointing me at
  Gwenole Beauchesne's quite excellent nspluginwrapper)

NetBSD/i386 users can now use the latest Linux flash plugin including
sound in their native Firefox and similar browsers.

To test:
   - Install multimedia/ns-flash, multimedia/libflashsupport, and
     www/nspluginwrapper from pkgsrc
   - Run "nspluginwrapper -i /usr/pkg/lib/netscape/plugins/"
   - Install & run firefox or another netscape plugin using browser

This has been tested under NetBSD/i386 3.99 and 4.0_BETA, with
native and modular x11.

It should also be possible to run it under NetBSD/amd64, and other
x86 Linux emulating pkgsrc platforms.

Success, and (heaven forfend) failure reports welcomed.
