Since xine 1.2.x depends on libavutil unconditionally
(https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=762784) it's basically
the only solution.

But I don't see any real problem here. Can you put an specific
combination of circumstances that would be problematic? It would be
safer and easier if libavutil versioned symbols in a more detailed way
instead of just to avoid using symbols from a library with a different
soname, but that problem happens with lots of libraries that don't
even version symbols at all.
xine is the only package from openSUSE that will link against it. And
the most common case is for users to use both xine and libavutil from
Packman. So this seems 100% safe to me.
