Hi Jean-Baptiste,

I am sorry, but I do not have the coding skills to understand your 
question. I am merely a user of vlc trying to compile it using buildroot 
and to prepare an update for the vlc package in buildroot in my patch 
series to introduce ffmpeg 3.0 support for buildroot:

The hint Rémi gave me in the trac ticket was enough for me to fix the 
compile error. Whether this is the real fix or just a plain hack is 
something for you to decide ;)

Regards, Bernd
