I strongly disagree that this arch specific defect on ppc is in any way
a blocking bug for recompiling moc-ffmpeg-plugin against the new libav
libraries.  It only affects (some?) altivec enabled machines and can be
easily avoided by disabling the altivec variant.

Ideally, we find a porter that can identify the bug and provide a patch
for fixing the segmentation fault. I've copied the powerpc porters and
ask them hereby for their assistance.

Or, if porters approached me, I also could disable the altivec builds in
libav completely, penalizing potential altivec users that do not
experience this issue.
