It turned out that old Gnash 0.8.10 does not have the compilation problem.
(But it crashes if it tries to play audio)

I have done git bisect test on `--disable-media` compilation failure problem
(484ca4c bad -> 0.8.10 good), and it got quite messy as there were several
different compilation and autogen error around that time.

The bisect test narrows the cause of compilation failure to these
five consecutive commits (from last to first):

I'm not sure how to narrow them further, since all of them seems to be
closely related, and they all failed in autogen script (except the top one).

On current git version, configuring Gnash with `--disable-media` option
causes the build process to fail.

The configure command I used was a plain `./configure --disable-media`.
Configuration and build logs are attached as `configure-disable-media.484ca4c.zip`.

It's a configure switch

that is an option for Gnash or when compiling?

When media are disabled but sound is not there's an assertion
failure whenever sound is attempted to be used.
