sorry for that - i have just downloaded the tar not from git ... there are few
more very simple changes (adding --enable-pic for X264CONF in two places and
--enable-shared for ffmpeg), which i will send later as git patch

I also had to change live to add -fPIC and ended creating config.linux64 from
config.linux with this flag inside the Makefile - is this acceptable or it
should be in ./Patches

I was lazy to manually download and compile the missing libs, so just did
'make src' for a quickstart, maybe a distro.mak with only the missing libs
will be a good addition
