 We're using an old snapshot.  I was fairly happy with a random recent
 snapshot (with corresponding changes to its users), but dj pointed out
 *(September 8, 2008)* FFmpeg is undergoing major changes in its API/ABI.
 The last valid revision for libavcodec version 51 is r15261.

 Certainly, things newer than this are causing its users (xine-lib,
 transcode) to jump through increasing numbers of hoops.

 The fun thing, as I've just found out, is trying to get a corresponding
 version of libswscale which is in a separate repo.  Trying snapshots from
 git-web, I'll see if I can make them match up to the changes tomorrow.
