[vlc-devel] Latest CVS source and Mac OSX

Hello, all ...

I'm trying to build the latest VLC source from the CVS repo under Mac 
OSX, and ./configure is telling me that the libmpeg2 in /usr/local/lib 
is too old.  OK, I can live with that, but when I tried fetching a 
newer one (a CVS snapshot that indicated I wouldn't need the latest 
autoconf or stuff like that), I found that I was thrust into autoconf 
hell.  Yuck.

Has anyone else built the latest VLC from CVS under Mac OSX (10.2.6)?  
Though our project is targeting Linux, I find it very convenient to be 
able to code, build and test on my iBook.  I was able to do this with 
the 0.5.3 release, but not from the CVS sources.  Can anyone help?
