Please split kde and gnome dependencies for gnash-plugin

a home dir is harder than it should be) - I don't think the KDE people like
getting all those unneeded GTK deps either.
I'll see if I can't be useful and knock up a patch to the spec that will be
This was an upstream issue, there are a lots of duplicates
of this bug. Should be solved with the new version.
gnash-0.8.1-2.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
