Probably around a trillion or so. Why is this what matters? You don't  
maintain it and it's not part of your final lav[cfu] binary. Like  
Luca said, m4/.am language isn't that big a deal, it's (similar to C  
code) the people writing it needing to have some clue.

Since you appear very negative towards this, let's be constructive  
again, how do you suggest to keep it easy (as in a one-click action)  
to integrate ffmpeg svn revisions into a foreign source tree for  
development purposes?
