Excellent...  I removed the via lib and rebuilt.  After a few other
minor tweaks, it played great.  My lowly p3-1400 has never
played HD content so well.  Almost might reconsider building a
new frontend...

I still think the configure script might need a bit more work as
I'd think more people than I will have both libs loaded and 
manually removing a package installed library isn't a very good
permanent solution.  But a big improvement over .18.

Thanks for the help.
