This commit make me rise some remarks :

- make build works now for Os X.
- Scons build is broken. it is also official build system.

- When ran, this spew no less than 6 "dyld: image not found" error  
on console when lib is not found, + 3 other lines. This may be a bit  
too much.

-This library is huge (744 Ko) so making it optional is good. Now,  
for unix
users, it is ok as they are used to add libs in their system.

But for windows and Os X users, this is not a thing they  are used to  
do. So
will we have to furnish this lib as additional download ?

I dont remember this was discussed earlier. This will also certainly  
endless threads on elysium and pbo about the missing lib (remember the
  python venture before and even after we changed the "site" warning).

Finally what features this gives that are not available via quicktime ?
