[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] define private libs properly in pkgconfig files

Currently all the libraries ffmpeg links against are listed in "Libs:"
of *.pc files.

However, those libraries need to be specified only when a program is
linked statically against ffmpeg, not when ffmpeg is a shared library.
Therefore one should use "Libs.private:" instead of "Libs:".
Quote from pkg-config man page:
>        Libs.private:
>               This  line  should  list any private libraries in use.  Private libraries are libraries which are not exposed
>               through your library, but are needed in the case of static linking.

Patch attached.
