  We have Xv support, it just doesn't work well. Trying to use it
actually increases your cpu load due to scaling problems. I'm removing
all the hardware accel code from the release since it's now totally
broken after last night's checkin and I don't want anyone to try it. So
much for a stable trunk... I thought we weren't gonna check in untested
changes, but oh well...

  Nope, we use it for low level sound handling and the SDL GUI still
works fine. I'd love to get rid of the SDL dependency for sound one of
these days...

  Also we're missing several Fedora package names, and only list the
debian packages names.

  Most people don't want to built the docs, so we have preformatted
versions that get used if docbook isn't installed.

  I'll see if I can make these tweaks you've mentioned to the configure
script. I was also going to enable --disable-testsuite by default as
well, which will drop the warnings for all the testing dependencies.
