I encountered some problem with debugging VLC on Leopard, so I decided  
to do it again on Tiger.

However, when I tried to build VLC on tiger, there are some build  
errors. Building ffmepg isn't possible because it produced build  
errors related to mmx and sse features even on Tiger just like  
Leopard. In my opinion, we need to make ffmpeg build with disable-mmx  
option. Here is a patch, an attached file named  
"patch_for_Makefile.patch", for extras/contrib/src/Makefile.

When building VLC, I must use an option, 'CFLGAS=-std=gnu99 OBJC=gcc  
OBJCFLAGS=-std=gnu99', or building VLC failed because of a lots of  
build errors. In this case, I don't have any patch for it.

Finally, as I mentioned before, it isn't possible to use gdb or XCode3  
for debugging VLC on Leopard. VLC running on gdb produces unexpected  
SIGHUP, and breakpoints don't work at all. On Tiger, there are no  
problems, however.
