Nitpicking is allowed, but I don't really think this is a nitpicking
comment :D

I tried adding it back in and it did pretty much break video for me, but
on the plus side audio worked fine :D

Perhaps I've just not got the right subpackages of libvlc installed for
video output sans xlib, but certainly it's not a simple matter of just
using the --disable-xlib argument.

What video output modules should be used when xlib is disabled?
