It's a binary package without source, the dependency can't be changed,

The w32codec-all is a complete useles package, with 64 bit players it 
can't be used and 32 bit players don't use it default, because the 
ffmpeg encoders have higher priority.
For years I haven't seen a video that used a codec that doesn't work 
without w32codec-all.
I've disabled the package years ago on PMBS, I don't know who's 
reactivated it.

Don't install it, you will not miss it ;-)
