  :-( Bummer... Guess I get to go fix it... My guess is now each media
handler will also need it's own package, so people can install with
ffmpeg or gstreamer (or both) support. The advantage now being a
splitting up of dependencies for packages.

  XV is already broken, it compiles OK, just give no real performance
improvement. So this isn't a big problem.

  I'll go over the configure changes. Usually the problems are getting
it working on multiple platforms. Is this checked in or in a branch still ?

  I was actually looking at this yesterday, and think it may be easier
than at first thought. As I've been playing with OpenVG and OpenGL-ES,
in a branch, I was debating whether it was time to fix this also and
make renderers dynamically loadable. The bigger question I didn't answer
was whether it would be be better to do it now, or wait till after the
next release.
