That's right, and actually, the situation is even a bit more difficult. in fact, the library is compiled 3 times in total for 3 different variants. The first one is as static library, which doesn't need to be compiled with -fPIC. The last one is with altivec optimisations, which already has "-fPIC -DPIC" as instructed per --extra-cflags flag. The non-altivec version however is compiled with -fPIC only, no -DPIC is added. This is arguably a bug in the configure script and should be fixed and not overriden by a configure line, though. Can you arrange me access to such a machine so that I can look at fixing the configure script? without a real machine, developing a fix for this will be pretty challenging. The machine should have all build-dependencies of ffmpeg installed, preferably in an unstable chroot. -- Gruesse/greetings, Reinhard Tartler, KeyID 945348A4 _______________________________________________ pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list email@example.com http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-multimedia-maintainers
