Ok, here goes:

== Mandriva ==

The packages in 2010.1 and later have the aac decoder and encoder
disabled. The packages in 2010.0 and older are uncrippled.

Also, some external libraries are not shipped with Mandriva and are
therefore disabled (mp3lame, faad, opencore-amr, x264).

There is a build-time switch in the package that can be used to enable
all the disabled codecs, and binary builds using that switch are
provided in a 3rd party [http://plf.zarb.org/ PLF] repository. The
builds are always kept in sync so that there are no binary
