Tried multiple times, compilation of the sample c code from this
thread works but compilation of VLC fails on Ubuntu 12.04.

With the following workaround the error goes away by upgrading
libc6-dev from the 12.04 (precise) to the 14.04 (trusty) one:
sed -i -e 's|precise|trusty|'g /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install libc6-dev

However this means that the resulting binary depends on the newer
14.04 (trusty) libc6 that gets installed along with libc6-dev which I
want to avoid.

Is there another way to compile VLC on Ubuntu 12.04 without needing to
upgrade libc6-dev?
