	This same idea occurred to me recently -- using a Linux config type of 
system for FFmpeg -- but I had no idea that kbuild was a separate 
software package that other projects could integrate.

	I see that kbuild (kbuild.sf.net) is GPL. Would that conflict with 
FFmpeg at all? Sure, FFmpeg is LGPL, but we do not want to build kbuild 
into FFmpeg. We would just want to use kbuild to build FFmpeg.
