Mostly, yes. But the configure stuff is still out of date.

Hmm. I had understood 1.1 did require them... this part needs to be
updated :)

When was it introduced? I searched git log from present up to 2007 and
couldn't find anything about this.

Ok. This needs to be updated to say so :)

Thanks for the input!

In summary:

- configure does not require flags
- libraries that are not in the default prefix AND not in vlc contribs
must be known to pkg-config

Anything else?
