PLD requires ARMv5T, so it's missing from ARMv4. IMHO it's highly questionable 
that you'd want to decode MPEG2 video on such on old (slow) CPU. So I'd say it 
makes more sense to explicit build libmpeg2 against ARMv5, and prevent protect 
the libmpeg2 VLC plugin with a CPU capability.

In any case, HAVE_WINCE seems wrong here.
