I think the limitation is that nspluingwrapper is designed to fix this
32-bit/64-bit problem so there's no easy way to compile it for 32-bit
systems. If I recall correctly, I tried to compile it for for 32-bit
last year without much luck. I imagine distributions just aren't
shipping a 32-bit version of nspluginwrapper.

Please someone correct me if I'm wrong, because this could be very
useful to people on 32-bit systems.
