By the way, why was fourcc_gen introduced in the first place ? Or can
we just go back to how things were without requiring to build and run
local exe. After all if you're cross-compiling with a C99 compiler,
you should not be required to have a C99 compiler also for your local
environment. For example a buildbot may not run locally compiled code
for security reasons.
