The npapi-sdk project installs the nsplugin headers necessary for a plugin to implement the nsplugin interface. Its purpose is to allow people to avoid installing xulrunner/firefox/seamonkey as a prerequisite to compiling their nsplugins. This can be beneficial to people who do not use mozilla-based browsers and want to compile nsplugins or as a more lightweight build dependency for a plugin (such as in a build tinderbox setup). It also makes distros happier.

This patch causes gnash's buildsystem to first check for presence of npapi-sdk. If that copy of the nsplugin is unavailable, it falls back to the current behavior of searching for mozilla-plugin. Thus, it should not affect people who want to build the plugin using the traditional method.
