Well I can hard wire kino to point to each include path, but isn't this 
the .pc files job? Shouldn't kino ( or any other program ) just be able 
to use the Cflags from the .pc file and find the include path. That way 
when ffmpeg changes the include path kino can still find it.

Or do I have this all wrong, as usual.
