I had to recompile all the autoconfig, automake and libtool because the
precompiled ones given in the tutor didnot work for me. Therefore I need
a more recent version of m4, which cannot be built natively with msys (

> The reason I need a vlc based on gcc 4.2.1 is the following. When I compile
vlc with gcc 3.4, in the plugins directory, I can find a plugin
libmp4_plugin.dll for the demuxer MPEG-4 file. If I take this plugin and
put it into the plugins directory (overwrite the
original libmp4_plugin.dll) of the vlc precompiled with 4.2.1 (available on
your website), the demuxer MPEG-4 file is no longer available in the VLC
4.2.1. I hope that with the same base gcc, I can exchange the modules
between the vlc compiled by myself and the one supplied by your website. Is
that really correct?
Of course it is non sense to exchange 2 modules having exactly the same
funcionality. It was just an example. What I try to do is to create myself a
VLC plugin module (only the module, not the whole VLC), then that module can
be incoporated in the vlc that is widely available on your website.
