That did the trick. Now it's compiling.
Now on to a *perhaps* more difficult questions. We have a super small
embedded device that runs redhat with a touchscreen. We are wanting to
integrate liteweight flash onto it. I noticed the compiled swfdec lib is
about 5mb. We only have about 1mb of space or so to work with for this
feature. We do not need all the features of flash, just some basic display
the swf, and receive UI notifications.
1. Approximately how small can swfdec be compiled down to?
2. We started to look at flash-lite but can't find any sources for it.
3. Any other recommendations for a super lite flash player?
