thanks for the reply. I've now looked at the thread and fully understand
that the package has been pulled and appreciate re-configuring/-building
packages like ffmpeg to not rely on libfaac, but, as MPlayer and avidemux,
at least, also require "libfaac.so.0", I hope similar tidying will be
done for such packages, too. Does anybody know, if so and when?
