Faad2 changed their API. because of this we are currently only 
compatible with the unreleased 1.2 version.
Of course this is less then ideal, because it prevents us from having 
faad2 support in many distributions. (since not many will include cvs 

The changes are really trivial, but some idiot got it into his mind to 
use a string as a version-identifier of the library
> #define FAAD2_VERSION "1.2 beta"

And you cannot check strings at compile time with #if
mplayer solved it like this: 

But i don't know how to port that to our configure.ac.in
Could anyone please take a look at this? I'd really like to see this
