I don't understand the race here. What is running in paralell to the
configure script here?

In the build log, the result of the check is already (faulty) positive

        checking for avcodec.h in legacy ffmpeg directory... yes

*before* the code is actually compiled. The error message

        ffmpeg_avcodec.c:3:28: error: ffmpeg/avcodec.h: No such file or 

is printed *after* the line, that reports the result of the check to be positive.

In squeeze and later, this check must always fail. To fix this bug, this
check should be either forcefully disabled or fixed.

I think my patch does fix this check. Now it checks for the actual compilation result and not for a spurious "$?" return code of any other command that may have been finished successfully before the code to be checked has actually been compiled.
