libdvdnav-4.2.0 is available from the same download location as
libdvdread-4.2.0 http://dvdnav.mplayerhq.hu/releases/ it installs in
the same way as libdvdread: you run ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr instead
of configure. It installs its headers into /usr/include/dvdnav. Should
libdvdnav be in the book? Xine-lib can use it (though configure --help
warns against it).
