Checking if handbrake compiles under kFreeBSD?

Hi there.

There's this moderately popular video ripper/transcoder/converter based on
ffmpeg/libav called [handbrake][0], which I am trying to [package for

[0]: http://handbrake.fr/
[1]: http://git.debian.org/?p=pkg-multimedia/handbrake.git

Handbrake is supposed to work under many environments and Christian Marillat
created some packages for his repository, which contains a [patch for

As I don't have a *BSD system available, I would like to make sure that the
package compiles/works before the first upload to Debian, once we have the
basics arranged.

[2]: http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-multimedia/handbrake.git;a=blob;f=debian/patches/0004-Enable-compilation-on-kFreeBSD-arches.patch

Given this, would it be possible for the people working on kFreeBSD to see
if the patch given above is sufficient, if there are improvements to be made

For now, the package in that repository has only two (soon to be only 1)
build-dependency that is not yet satisfied in Debian proper: libmkv-dev and

The first is already in the NEW queue of the ftp-masters, but both are ready
to be built from the pkg-multimedia git repositories:

[3]: http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-multimedia/faac.git
[4]: http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-multimedia/libmkv.git

For now, handbrake is not yet able to be built cleanly with
git-buildpackage, but once the build-dependencies are installed, a simple
"fakeroot debian/rules binary" creates working debs for it.

Well, that's it. I intend to push everything to upstream, so that we carry
as little of a delta as possible.

Thanks in advance,
