[FFmpeg-devel] [patch] Fix compilation error for C++ users

OK, if that is the reason why this patch is rejected, fair enough.
I just figured that this innocent patch would make it easier for C++ users
to use ffmpeg as well - as this is really the only thing that needs to be
changed to use ffmpeg in a C++ application (besides the extern "C" block
around the includes).

It just sucks for all of these C++ users that have always used ffmpeg
without a problem and suddenly bump into this issue (which can be quite hard
to figure out for some people).
