It is not only my system that is affected, but DimStar, J-Peg and 
probably others. It affects at least archlinux, fedora 8 and OpenSuSE 
10.2, 10.3 and 11.0.

Actually it is everybody's problem except those that are running Debian 
and according to your reasoning it is ok to break vlc building on every 
other platform. What is that for an attitude?

Ah but you just _DO_NOT_ care since your system works !! It means I am 
NOT the one who is selfish but YOU.

Listing to your objections it would be best to revert the commit that 
introduced this problem. Do you happen to know which one that is? Or do 
you not care?
