1. add a section to makelibs.sh

2. Try to compile.

3. Figure out the patches.

4. save the patch to the patches dir. (or include it inline but that is 
harder I feel)


Is it required to link against the lib produced?

Is there an equivalent header in android (do a quick find)?

I assume drm here means Direct Rendering Manager. Given that we are not 
letting ffmpeg render, can this be requirement be disabled in ffmpeg
