Why? It _could_ be made a script included in FFmpeg and that
automatically is used when compiling with ICL.
You could also support most via the normal configure filter function
(so that functionality-testing is available), it's just that replacing

Hm, but then the compiler is not C99-compatible.
Anyway, I do not know about others, but I would not mind including such
stub headers for ICL either, assuming they are under a compatible
