They should be exactly the same RPMs.

The GM version is exactly what I need (since we are not building
against the updates).
I created the SLE-11-SP2 version from those sources.
mjpegtools doesn't compiles because it needs SDL_gfx, that is not
available for SLE-11. But I added the gmtk package to do the test and
it works.

So... any +1/-1 about adding these rpm packages to Essentials?
Again, the idea is to allow multimedia:libs/multimedia:apps
maintainers play with the new rpm features. We can link them and will
still build in the old distros that we support and they don't.

Notice that for some reason the aegisub package fails to build (not
related to the rpm packages). No idea why...
