[Ffmpeg-devel] build systems

Have a look at buildroot (part of the uclibc project).  It's a (brilliant) tool for building embedded linux distros.

This page (http://buildroot.uclibc.org/buildroot.html) explains the process of adding a new package to buildroot.

They provide a 'make menuconfig' interface for package selection.  And they have neat tricks to avoid rebuilding the entire distro+toolchain.  The package selection mechanisms might be useful for ffmpeg.

Those are likely to use something they forked off the linux kernel
tree some time ago, and have since tweaked in one way or another.
Which version would be more suitable for ffmpeg is difficult to say.
