I admit I didn't look if any other software that depended on it, but
there well could be anytime, since ffmpeg could be wanted because of
the dynamic libraries alone.
MPlayer appears to embed its own copy (at least of the libraries,
which is what I was interested in), and these build fine with mmx
support. Mplayer however links them statically. Perhaps that using
MPlayer releases it wouldn't be too much trouble to automatically
patch the old ffmpeg tree we're using?
Although this would still seem kludgy of course, but it would allow
to use two resources which are less likely to change everyday. I'm
not even sure how to proceed exactly with pkgsrc if doing this.
Extracting mplayer internally and make it a build dependency like for
mencoder, then applying custom pkgsrc patches, to then execute a
script with arbitrary sh/diff/patch/sed/link commands to "fix" ffmpeg,
to then build it normally?
