Ok, then let's not enable those for the source tarball and in the build.

I just want an easy way to build the projects in order to have the
windows build with the eternal projects...

As the de facto packager for windows, I disagree...

I don't get why there isn't a libvlc, vlc, vlc-modules-noX, vlc-modules,
vlc-plugin-mozilla vlc-plugin-phonon in the distributions.
But this is more a packager issue, or not ?
