I added the following defines

gcc -Wall -O2 -std=c99 -D _GNU_SOURCE -D __USE_UNIX98
-DMODULE_STRING=\"v4l3\" -I. -I /usr/include/vlc/plugins    -c -o v4l3.o
v4l3.c:250: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘N_’
v4l3.c:250: error: initializer element is not constant
v4l3.c:250: error: (near initialization for ‘psz_standards_list_text[0]’)

I tried adding define N_=(String), but that doesn't do much good.

Anybody knows how that is inheritated by vlc
