I have now sent the pkg-config patches to the BTS .
I have found a simpler way to make it possible to link packages not
using pkg-config against FFmpeg in Debian:
The lib*-ffmpeg-dev packages now install symbolic links from the
standard lib*.so library names to the suffixed ones.
This makes it possible to use the normal linker flags, e.g. '-lavcodec',
to link against the FFmpeg libraries with '-ffmpeg' suffix.
Therefore I have closed the bugs with the pkg-config patches .
Thus, once FFmpeg is through NEW, most packages can just switch the
build-dependencies to be build against FFmpeg.
