Redefining LDFLAGS will likely cause problems. I build Gnash on x86_64 Ubuntu platforms with no problem, so I'm more interested in what couldn't be found by configure. By default, configure lools in the 64bit directories before any others. The reason for excluding /usr/lib* is to enable cross-compiling.

There must be some macro (macro/* or configure.ac) that strips out "/usr/lib" to avoid forcing link to system libs in precedence over local libs. The strip is obviously bogus as it also strips prefixes rather than just full "/usr/lib" strings.

So next step: find it, squash it and send a patch

Thank you.

I decided to try the Ubuntus own build of Gnash 0.8.10 today. It worked ok, but fullscreen viewing was a pain. Too slow, 1-2 fps or so. Still my CPU is a AMD 3870K (4x3GHz).
I then wanted to test if a own build could preform any different results.
I used the deb-attempt-install-dependencies.sh and gave it a go. I had to use ./configure LDFLAGS=-L"/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu" to fix some problems finding files in that folder.
First I tried "make -j". That failed. I know that does not work on some software. Maybe Gnash does not support that.
Normal "make" got much further.
Now it ends with:
CXXLD sdl-gnash
g++: error: /x86_64-linux-gnu: No such file or directory

What are the next steps?
