BTW, what are the real disadvantages for downstreams with this extra
libavcore library? It's not even a compilation problem, should downstream
use pkg-config. An extra lib to package? Not a big issue either. I

OTOH, since FFmpeg 0.6 did not have libavcore, merging libavcore back now
should not be an issue for an upcoming FFmpeg 0.7.
