[vlc-devel] Do I need portaudio for VLC?

I am doing a custom build of vlc. This version is supposed to run on Ubuntu only.

When I ran "configure" script, I noticed the following warning:

configure: WARNING: Library portaudio-2.0 needed for portaudio was not found

VLC seems to build fine despite this warning. However, I am wondering if I should have installed this library. What is the consequence of not having this library?

Thank you in advance for your help.
