You might not have noticed but in ffmpeg 0.11, they removed a lot of
functions and structs that were marked as deprecated in the ffmpeg in
[extra] so any packages that still use that deprecated stuff won't
build anymore unless they're patched. As expected, this will take more
time than a simple rebuild. My remaining package (sox, electricsheep)
don't build  and I haven't found any patches online. Is there
documentation on how to port to the newer API? There are hints in the
header files but I got stuck. Electricsheep build but doesn't work,
probably because of the line I removed without replacing it (I don't
know how to replace it), so I'll need to do more work on the patch. If
someone knows about this stuff, I could post my current patches.
