Re: Avifile package - help needed

Just out of curiousity.. Does it work w/ 2.4.0-test11 and above? 
Something in avifile checks /proc/cpuinfo for the "flags" entry,
which was renamed in test11 (I don't remember the new name for
it, I reverted to test10.  Anyone running 2.4.0 could tell you).
Thus, it would die immediately for me.
