Because it's unfeasible in the majority of cases. And both xine-lib and xdtv
uses slightly modified versions of ffmpeg code, in the case of xine-lib I'm
trying to merge the changes so that the only things that would change would
be for cutting down the unneeded code.
Interfacing autotools with another build system is a mess, if you didn't try
it before, I can ensure you, and converting any other package to your build
system is unlikely (starting from the fact that's opinable if it's better of
autotools or not).

The problem is the suitable header, something that is not generated and that
would be included in all those points and in any other point that might use
PIC-aware code is needed, and I'm not really sure if there is one already (on
a first glance, my report was "no", but I might be mistaken as I don't know
the architecture enough).
