No, autoconf checks for libdvdcss and if found Drip is linked against it:

$ ldd /usr/bin/drip | grep libdvdcss
        libdvdcss.so.2 => /usr/lib/libdvdcss.so.2 (0x4019a000)

My understanding is that Drip being linked against libdvdcss is illegal
in the USA, so a solution could be to put it in non-us.
