Dossy had a brilliant idea: plugin should be built anyway, let alone warnings :)

Sorry, I take it back. it's just a problem with --disable-shared.
I'll add a warning so it doesn't come out any more

It's worst than what I tought. The plugin is simply installed and suddenly removed !

Commenting out the removal line the static lib gets installed, which is wrong, but probably closer to what should be done.
I'm checking shared lib now.

Because disabling shared libraries disables building the plugin, which must be a shared library. While someday if would be nice to build the plugin even if everything is built as statically, I don't think we have to fix this for the upcoming release.

This is the log of 'make install':

chmod 644 /home/strk/.firefox/plugins/gnash/libgnashplugin.a
ranlib /home/strk/.firefox/plugins/gnash/libgnashplugin.a
rm -f /home/strk/.firefox/plugins/gnash/libgnashplugin.*a /home/strk/.firefox/plugins/gnash/libgnashplugin.so.0 /home/strk/.firefox/plugins/gnash/libgnashplugin.*.T
