Re-import multimedia/adobe-flash-player24 as multimedia/adobe-flash-player
for future major version bump with compatibility.
We had multiple adobe-flash-plugin versions in the past because
newer 11.x versions didn't work on older (4.x) NetBSD systems.
However I guess Adobe will not put aggressive changes that require
newer Linux kernel version (i.e. emul.linux.kern.osrelease on NetBSD)
in future periodical major updates, as per their announcements:
> Because this change is primarily a security initiative, some features

No objection on pkgsrc-users@:

NPAPI Adobe Flash player plugin for the Firefox browser.
This package contains a plugin that enables web browsers to render
the Flash format.
The nspluginwrapper option (enabled by default on non Linux platforms)
permits the use of the the Linux x86 and x86_64 flash player in Firefox
browsers on other x86 systems and x86_64 systems.
For NetBSD this package requires NetBSD 6.2 or 7.1 (and later versions)
which include procfs fixes for Linux binaries.
