 This seems to have gotten worse.  There's now no export_mpeg module at
 all(!) - neither a .a or a .so.
 It's also not immediately clear whether export_mpeg is still supported.
 It's still listed in the man page and a few of the documentation files,
 but doesn't seem to be mentioned in the export directory containing the
 other export modules...
 It rather looks like the export_mpeg has been retired, but I can't
 see that actually mentioned anywhere.  Based on this, I suspect it's
 ok to close the PR now...
