Because, we need additional patch to rtld(1) to run Flash 7 with
linuxpluginwrapper, I think.  It is required only for Flash 7 and
But, we cannot expect Adobe, and we should move to Flash 7.  It is
better to commit following change into RELENG_6 and RELENG_5 to be in

Unfortunately, linuxpluginwrapper doesn't support symbol versioning,
yet.  So, the change is meaningless on HEAD.
