I just reverted today's update of libdvbpsi to version 1.1.0.
The new version had a soname bump (libdvbpsi.so.7 -> libdvbpsi.so.9) and, as far as I can tell, VLC isn't compatible with the new API and there are no patches either.
(Tip: checkpkg from devtools can be used to check for soname bumps.)
We still need to figure out why vlc doesn't build in a x86_64 chroot [vlc-cache-gen segfaults during build()]; it's the last package in the libpng 1.6 rebuild. :)
