My wife tells me she needs to watch some television show called Survivor
online, so I am installing xine-ui and mplayer.

I see that xine-lib depends on win32-codecs (on my platform).

But win32-codecs has NO_BIN_ON_CDROM and NO_BIN_ON_FTP defined.

It seems like we should not have any packages depend on something by
default that has restricted NO_BIN_ON_* or NO_SRC_ON_* defined.

I don't want to accidently upload my new packages to a
publically-available server.

Any comments on this? (Has this been debated before?)
