OK. Let's try:
so I have config.h and config.mak in the current dir.
make -C ffmpeg/Makefile
It does the compilation as expected. So that means that the "include
../config.mak" used in the one in my "current dir" ? Otherwise make
would output an error that it can't find the include, I suppose. Maybe
it's smart enough to find the common.mak the same way ?
