I updated quicktime4linux to 1.5.5, and solved an issue that causes transcode
to fail to build. It is a headerfile issue (the quicktime dv.h is found
first), about a header that quicktime4linux should not even install.

Downport of fix to 1.3
Downport of the fix (not really checked, but should work)

Update to the newest version of quicktime4linux
I don't understand this to be honest. What's downport?
I meant I applied the same fix to the old version of quicktime with less
checking as with the new libquicktime. The fix basically only installs what the
make install installs, so no libdv headers anymore as it conflicts with libdv
when building transcode
Paul, thanks for the ebuild. I have added it to portage. What I do not like
about this application is that there is no possibility of cross-compilation.
That is just bad form. Note, that I am blaming upstream for this. Is there an
alternate library that we can use that actually uses configure and make?
At the website of heroinewariours they say that they recommend the use of
OpenQuicktime(.sourceforge.net) instead of quicktime4linux, the problem is that
these libs are not entirely compatible and certain programs require one of them.
Closing the bug
