You are welcome!
For information only - I'm on openSUSE Factory so I compared vlc 2.1.5 with 2.1.5 from packman and
they result different too:

lorenzo at linux-rk39:~/Scaricati> diff vlc-devel-2.1.5-3.1.x86_64.rpm vlc-devel-2.1.5-217.3.x86_64.rpm 
Binary files vlc-devel-2.1.5-3.1.x86_64.rpm and vlc-devel-2.1.5-217.3.x86_64.rpm differ
