Finally identified the issue... It seems to be linked to a missing
include (sys/time.h) when compiling against 10.3.9 SDK (I'll try to
submit a patch a bit later). The new version of EasyWMA is now
available on the website. Diego, can you please have a look and let me
know if this is ok for you? If so, I will apply the same changes to
EasyWMV. Hope everything is ok. Thanks.
