I forgot to add: We have added back the bcond for fdk (but kept the 
explicit devel-free), so on next checkin to
Factory, we might end up with the situation where we build fdk-aac 
support in main bad package on OBS, but not on packman at all due to 
%define _without_fdk_aac 1 set in Essential prjconf.
But fine I guess, since at least the people installing the -addon-orig 
package, will have faad2 and faac to handle aac decoding/encoding.
