[vlc-devel] 8 hours later, still can't build vlc...

Fresh Cygwin.  Current subversion tree.
Tried the gcc 344 contribs, since it's new Cygwin.  No joy.
Spent hours trying to get extras/contrib to build -- no joy.  Ffmpeg blows
up, errors out.
Went back to try contribs again.  Looks like some new change has been added,
since 8 hours ago, that is forcing towards the extras/contrib directory
structure that doesn't compile :(.

I'm using:

  ./bootstrap && \
  PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/win32/lib/pkgconfig \
  CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/win32/include -I/usr/win32/include/ebml" \
  LDFLAGS=-L/usr/win32/lib \
  CC="gcc -mno-cygwin" CXX="g++ -mno-cygwin" \
  ./configure \
      --disable-gtk \
      --enable-nls --enable-sdl --with-sdl-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
      --enable-ffmpeg --with-ffmpeg-mp3lame --with-ffmpeg-faac \
      --with-ffmpeg-zlib --enable-faad --enable-flac --enable-theora \
      --with-wx-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
      --with-freetype-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
      --with-fribidi-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
      --enable-livedotcom --with-livedotcom-tree=/usr/win32/live.com \
      --enable-caca --with-caca-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
      --with-xml2-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
      --with-dvdnav-config-path=/usr/win32/bin \
      --disable-cddax --disable-vcdx --enable-goom \
      --enable-twolame --enable-dvdread 

checking gnutls/gnutls.h presence... yes
checking for gnutls/gnutls.h... yes
checking for gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2 in -lgnutls... yes
checking for liveMedia/libliveMedia.a in
c/live... no
configure: error: cannot cd to /home/mfm/vlc-trunk/./extras/contrib/src/live

The above is right from the install.win32, current.  Has someone perhaps
today hardcoded a live.com reference to extras/contrib, or otherwise added a
new switch so that --with-livedotcom-tree=/usr/win32/live.com 
Is no longer the appropriate one to use?
