[FFmpeg-devel] [RFC/PATCH] build suffix for pkgconfig files

Hello all!  I'm trying to get ffmpeg 0.10.6 (i.e. what everything in the Fedora Core 17 repos depends on) to coexist with latest git (i.e. containing bug fixes I need, and what my mlt and kdenlive packages are built on top of now).  I was able to use the --progs-suffix and --build-suffix parameters to the configure script to get most of what I want, and now I have nice ffmpeg111 RPMs that install without conflicts alongside the repo's ffmpeg!

Enclosed is a patch (against the latest git version as of this e-mail) that fixes the generated pkgconfig files to have the build-suffix too, so that they don't conflict with other installed versions of ffmpeg.

I tried to apply the progs-suffix to the man-page filenames, but was unsuccessful.  Perhaps someone knows how to do that easily?  For now, I rename the installed files in my RPM .spec file.

Hope this patch is acceptable to you.  I was very happy when Carl Eugen fixed a nasty problem I was having with interlaced raw video, and wanted to contribute back in some way.
