That would work for some of the changes, but there's also other API changes.

In general, all the libav transitions have been handled via the BTS, so patches
should be found there. Some packages also ended up being incompatible/abandoned
and were eventuall removed, so please also check whether any of the failing
packages are actually still in jessie. Otherwise they should be EOLed.

Also, Brian's build logs also list chromium, which is already EOLed in wheezy
for a while (since current Chromium requires a newer G++).
