Ah, sorry. I had not the newest version installed on my own system
(but installed on another), now I've installed it:

$ dpkg -l | grep adobe
ii  adobe-flashplugin          
Adobe Flash Player plugin version 10


$ LC_ALL=C apt-cache depends adobe-flashplugin | grep dev
  Depends: libnspr4-dev
  Depends: libnss3-dev

Yes, I did say that this deb package was downloaded from, and it has

Maintainer: Ubuntu MOTU Developers <ubuntu-motu at>
Original-Maintainer: DL-Flash Player Ubuntu <FlashPlayerUbuntu at>

in debian/control file.

I don't think that this is a joke from Adobe, but this package was
really packaged by Ubuntu guys, otherwise it would'nt have
"ubuntu-motu at" in control file, eh? ;) So I decided to
write directly to maintainers to talk about broken dependencies.

P.S. I'm Debian user, not Ubuntu.
