actually, I think I have been lucky just to compile vlc successfully

here is the error I get:

Apparently, this is related to commit

and Qt::BlockingQueuedConnection has been added in qt >= 4.3.
I just compared the two following links:

and BlockingQueuedConnection appears in the second one.

So, either qt >= 4.3 is required, then it would be kind to mention it
in http://wiki.videolan.org/Contrib_Status
or 4.2.3 can be used, but I don't know how... that's right, I'm using
qt 4.2.1... but it worked yesterday.

I just created an account on the wiki. Can I update the contrib status
page (once I'll check that it works with qt >= 4.3)?
