* Fix most (if not all) of the bugs reported in the past days :
[if I forgot anything please remind me]

- A/V are out of sync for BeOS and ALSA audio outputs ;
- SDL plugin gets compiled even if SDL is not installed or if a too 
old version is installed ;
- "sound quality seems to be worse compared to 0.2.62 (high freqency
   echo noise the same, 'clicking' got worse, and there
   are other artifacts like the intro music track of
   'Usual suspects' dvd not keeping the tone - you know,
   up's and down's - whereas dialogue is OK)" 
(<200103120958.f2C9wIN05883 at mailgate3.cinetic.de>)
- Warnings with glibc 2.2 and gcc 3.0 (<01030923274802.19575 at beetle>) ;
- Fix field pictures scaling [you know, nitrox's code] ;

* Stabilize most ports :
[feedback appreciated]

- Linux/PPC : compiling, working, no feedback for DVD input, no 
feedback for the AC3 bug fix ;
- Linux/alpha : compiling, working (slow), no feedback for DVD input, 
alignment traps fixed (unconfirmed) ;
- BeOS : compiling, working, DVD input, native interface, audio and 
video output, A/V out of sync ;
- FreeBSD : compiling, working, no DVD input ;
- Solaris/Sparc : compiling, working (only one report), Makefile 
quirks needed ;
- MacOS X/Darwin : compiling, not working (dlsym problem).
