I got it to compile, using the latest versions, by modding the vlc  
confgiure script.  The location of the postprocessing lib has changed  
in the ffmpeg tree and if you mod the vlc configure script to find it  
then everything moves along.  Unfortunately, I'm away from my mythbox  
for a week or so and I can't give you anymore details other than to  
say once you hack the config script to get by this problem then you'll  
also have to mod some of the souce files that won't compile due to an  
invalid path to the postprocess header file.  It takes a little work,  
but it will build.
