Yes please.

Looking at the history of libmp4v2, the initial commit has this bit:

"split out the libmp4v2 part from mpeg4ip -- all users in the pkgsrc
tree just need that library, the player in mpeg4ip just causes an unwanted
dependency on SDL and complications due to plugin building"

So removing the include file from the mpeg4ip package is probably the
way to go. Note that the entire MPEG4IP suite looks very unmaintained.
