Is the 1.2/2.0 branch "restricted" already? Or do you think it is it still time to have that patch in it?

Yes, I'm aware of that. Right now, our (osx) cross-compiling attempts are experimental / for evaluation. I might end-up building linux on linux.
I guess there is still value in these attempts if it ends-up with such patches that I hope will further strengthen VLC build system.

Actually, I'm interested only in libvlc (and contribs - not the VLC gui), so I guess the QT missing bits won't hit me? (either way, I'm interested in crosscompiling QT as well).
