+dnl These days we check avcodec.h and pick the version out of the constants,
+dnl simply throwing away all non-digits.
+dnl In earlier versions we have:
+dnl #define FFMPEG_VERSION_INT     0x000409
+dnl #define FFMPEG_VERSION         "0.4.9-pre1"
+dnl #define LIBAVCODEC_BUILD       4731
+dnl elsewhere, FFMPEG_VERSION may also be the quoted string "CVS"
+dnl This changed from the above to
+dnl #define LIBAVCODEC_VERSION_INT ((49<<16)+(0<<8)+0)
+dnl #define LIBAVCODEC_VERSION     49.0.0
+dnl (note, LIBAVCODEC_VERSION also changes from a quoted string to unquoted)
+dnl see
+dnl Those deb-heads at Debian redefine LIBAVCODEC_VERSION in their versions to
+dnl (e.g.) 1d.51.38.0 or dnl 0d.51.11.0 - we need to discard the prefixed
+dnl rubbish.
+dnl Other values or LIBAVCODEC_VERSION spotted in the wild:
+dnl 50.0.0  50.5.0  51.7.0  51.8.0  0d.51.8.0  51.40.4
+dnl presumably this will change to 52.0.0 at some point...
+dnl We can ignore the very early versions because 51.10.0 is necessary to 
+dnl Flash video at all. However the current solution will incorrectly succeed
+dnl on early debian/ubuntu 1d.* version numbers and incorrectly fail
+dnl when 52.0.0 happens.
+dnl The most reliable way is to compile a test program to print the value of
+dnl LIBAVCODEC_BUILD, which got up to dnl 4718 at version 0.4.9-pre1,
+dnl then changed to (major<<16 + minor<<8 + micro) from then on.
+dnl There is code to do this in transcode's, but when
+dnl cross-compiling we cannot run a test program, which suggests that
+dnl a modified form of grepping may be better, making sure all old kinds of
+dnl version numbering fail gracefully.
