Well just in case you ever try to help someone with such a problem, what I did 
wrong was

1) first try to install a package name given by googling, which turned out to 
be wrong

2) when I had found the correct one by yum search (yes, I had done that) I 
tried to install it along with three swfdec-related packages.  The install 
failed with a list of dependencies that could not be resolved.  Searching the 
repos for those dependencies did not yield gold, and pbone couldn't find them 

The moral is, install one package at a time if a group fails.  I really should 
have seen that the dependencies were all for the swfdec packages, not for the 
flash plugin, but I was so busy trying to find them that I missed it.
