In FFmpeg revisions 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9, 0.10, 0.11, 1.0 and 1.1, VA-API was
autodetected by configure, default compilation always produced ffmpeg
executables that depend on libva and I do not remember any user protesting
Since 1.2 (and without any documentation afaict), VA-API is not auto-detected
anymore, this was quickly reported by users (see also ticket #2368).
On my system, a default FFmpeg compilation (./configure && make ffmpeg)
produces a binary that depends, apart from the typical system libraries and
libz and libbz2, on libsdl, libasound and libjack (which depends on
libstdc++), libva has no further dependencies afaict.
I don't use VA-API (and I don't care much) but I suggest attached patch that I
would also backport to release/1.2.
Please comment, Carl Eugen
