Bug#610087: ITP: corsix-th -- Open source clone of Theme Hospital

Hi Alexandre,

I see you've got corsix-th as far as the NEW queue, congratulations
and sorry for my unhelpful offer then silence - I struggle with
actually getting started with development. I have also now learned how
to subscribe to the BTS, as I didn't notice when you began the
packaging in git.

I attempted to rebuild the master branch for a local jessie backport,
but the configure step failed to find libswresample [571] which is not
in the libav port in jessie - upgrading to the [ffmpeg] provided
packages in jessie-backports solved that problem. I've attached a
patch that shouldn't affect sid, but forces the version number to
match the ffmpeg packages - this seemed simpler than adding a
compile-flag [WITH_LIBAV=ON] which would only be relevant to jessie,
making backporting more complex.

[571]: https://github.com/CorsixTH/CorsixTH/issues/571
[ffmpeg]: https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/ffmpeg

Is this a reasonable (small) improvement that you would accept into
the package, or do you have any other feedback? If so, am I ok to
simply commit it to the pkg-games repo so it would be included in the
next build after the current NEW has been accepted into the archives
(presumably with the next corsix-th release)?
