Version 126.96.36.199-r1 of the flashplayer is missing the "flashplayer" start script formerly installed by 188.8.131.52. The only trace of this change in the ChangeLog is:
14 Jul 2007; <firstname.lastname@example.org> netscape-flash-184.108.40.206.ebuild:
Remove file that no longer exists
It would be nice to install that file again.
Some changes are also documented in bug 185141.
No such thing in the RPM we are using now.

I filed a bug with Adobe..
