I am compiling vlc 3.0 with contribs and it seems that vlc configure cannot 
detect anymore libfaad2 library:

checking faad.h usability... yes
checking faad.h presence... yes
checking for faad.h... yes
checking for faacDecOpen in -lfaad... no
checking for NeAACDecOpen in -lfaad... no
configure: error: Cannot find libfaad library...

Contribs compilation does not fail, and I have a faad2 library

# cd contrib/native/faad2
#ls -l libfaad/.libs/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1077350 Dec  5 08:41 libfaad.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      13 Dec  5 08:41 libfaad.la -> ../libfaad.la
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root     994 Dec  5 08:41 libfaad.lai

thank for your help.
