[mythtv] mythmusic broken - av_estimate_timings private in latest libavformat

With the latest cvs, mythmusic is crashing on me when scanning for new 

It seems in the latest libavformat that av_estimate_timings() has been 
made static (in utils.c). However, the function is still advertised in 
avformat.h, and mythmusic calls it (in avfdecoder.cpp).

Looking at ffmpeg on sourceforge, it appears the av_estimate_timings() 
declaration has been removed from avformat.h. Not sure why it's still in 
the myth version - faulty merge?

Anyway, looks like avformat.h needs to be resynced with ffmpeg, and then 
mythmusic/avfdecoder.cpp updated to not use av_estimate_timings()
