I was building with the May, 15 sources succesfully and I have tried
updating to the latest sources and contrib package but can't build
anymore on cygwin. Here are the steps I have taken and the result:

- Erased my VLC source dir and extracted last night sources there
- Successfully ran the bootstrap as per wiki info
- Erased the usr/win32 dir and extracted the new contrib package there
as per wiki info
- Ran ./configure-vlc.sh, created as per wiki info, which fails with
the following message:

checking for img_resample in -lavcodec... no
configure: error: Your FFmpeg library doesn't have the needed img_resample() fun
ction. You should rebuild it with software scaler disabled, or install the swsca
le headers.

Any help would be greatly appreciated so that I can get back to developing.
