I know that its easy to install that package. (Though I wonder whether
the linvdr guys agree.)
My point is just that its not a change-one-line-and-all-will-be-happy,
it does add one more to the build dependency.
Basically we have two options here:
1 - keep a hard coded include path. That way some people would need to
set up additional include paths manually.
2 - Use pkg-config. This way some people would need to install
pkg-config to build VDR.
The question is: Which way would spoil more people? At least for me
(s/me/Debian/), the default paths seem to be just fine. So I wonder: How
many people need to set up different include paths?
Or even better: Is there a third way that works for both?
