Re: Checking if handbrake compiles under kFreeBSD?

Hi, Steven.

I'm adding the HURD people here, so that they can test the package and see
if something should be done or not.

For the HURD people, this is a reply to [my first e-mail][*] about getting
the HandBrake ripper/transcoder working on kFreeBSD and patches that need to
be added for building:

Great. Thanks for testing this. It may be the case that handbrake is added
only latter, since, at present, compiling mp4v2 with other (L)GPL software
results in undistributable binaries.

I hope that the HURD people could let me know about this, so that I can fix
some potential problems and, if necessary, forward fixes to upstream.

Thanks to all,
