Not accusing you either. it is just that this commit came up a bit of  
the blue,
i dont remember this having been discussed in the previous meetings.

Afaik, we have 2 official builds systems (makefiles & scons) and imho  
at least
those should work on the committer platform (at least created if not  
Then, platform managers can take care of adapting to their needs.  
Other build
systems are provided as convenience only and their maintener will  

For the rest, we are near release, and the package point is of interest.
As the Os X manager, i find this commit indeed useful for unices, but
fear the number of support requests this will introduce on Os X and/or

ffmpeg was delayed to 2.41 partly for the same reason, useful for  
but status problematic for others
