Well, one thing we could do is setup a special BeBits account just for 
VLC, for which we all know the login info. This way, it wouldn't look 
like that for example "YellowBites" is publishing VLC. Tony would then 
have to transfer "his" application to that account.

I tried getting current versions for automake and autoconf, but messed 
things up during compilation. I tried to fix things (stupid me) in the 
scripts themself, instead of simply recompiling. Then I installed the 
scripts on top of my old ones, and somewhere in the process I got lost 
and finally I got the message I cannot install autoconf, it needs 
automake or the other way arround. That's when I gave up and gave the 
thought of asking you for ready to use packages some serious 
But I can try again too.
