The current source makes the same complaint and doesn't build libgnashsound

In Gnash master, libgnashsound does get installed. You can test this by using "make -C libsound". Can you retest this with master instead of the 0.8.9 release ? Also note that all gnash libraries get install in $prefix/lib/gnash, so you may need to add this path to ld.so.conf to make ldd happy.

'make install' returned:

libtool: install: /bin/ginstall -c .libs/libgnashsound.lai /usr/local/lib/gnash/libgnashsound.la
/bin/ginstall: cannot stat `.libs/libgnashsound.lai': No such file or directory

Copying libgnashsound.la into .libs seemed to make this work
Making install in libsound
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/gnash-0.8.9/libsound'
CXXLD libgnashsound.la
/usr/lib/gcc/i486-slackware-linux/4.5.3/../../../../i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lvga

? Why not? The libvga files are there; libgnashsound-0.8.9.so exists
and ldd reveals a found dependency on it.

After all my problems I could copy the executables and libraries into their target directories and gnash has worked so far.
