That's not completely correct. The dependency is set from faad2-devel to 
faad2 and from faad2-xmms-plugin. So if you want to install 
faad2-xmms-plugin, you also have to install faad2.

On the website there are only dependencies displayed to other packman 
packages, when there is a dependency to a package which is part of the 
SUSE DVD, it's not displayed on the website. The other thing is, when a 
package is updated, all dependency entries to this package are lost.
In this case the dependency to faac got lost, after I've updated faac.

Don't try to solve dependencies by hand, it's allways complicated. Let's 
deligate the job to the tools YaST, apt or Smart.
