I agree with Paul that the changes seem rather hacky.
If something needs symbols from the h264 qpel, maybe those parts that
need it should also be put under #ifdef, instead of always building
the h264 code. The same argument should be made for all these dsputil
related things that depend on special codec data, even if that codec
is disabled.
