Ok, I've gone through and made a bare minimum patch that will allow ffmpeg
to work with stlport.  The patch basically removes <time.h> from a few
header files and adds #include <time.h> to the files that need it.  Also
pthreads.h is moved from a few places too.

It works for me with stlport (where I only build the codecs I need).  It
also works with ffmpeg itself and builds all of the programs.

If can provide the patch (about 500 lines) if anyone is interested.
