Well, -Bsymbolic can help a bit, but not too much; using protected visibility 
for everything won't solve all of the problem, especially because it will 
fail to build, as there are functions that cannot be exported as protected in 
both libavutil and libavformat (I'm sure of this now).

I'm currently testing a simpler patch, that moves the whole #ifdef problem 
inside one single header per library (postprocess.h, common.h for libavutil, 
avcodec.h and avformat.h), without defining EXPORTED in configure anymore.
