Heres a proof of concept updated libpostproc


this is simply a clone of ffmpeg with everything unneeded
droped and the build system from the libpostproc repository
it builds successfully but is completely untested beyond that

It seems the old buildsystem lacks HAVE_MMX*_INLINE support, this
would need to be added, as well as updating README and all that as
well as testing

also the differences in aboves repo could possibly be used to
construct a script to create a split out libpostproc for debian
if thats whats wanted.
