OK, I also googled these terms. Results:
- lots of results that are various ffmpeg-devel mailing list archives
- some results in ffmpeg git mirrors
- the ffmpeg AUR package, which lists all unused/disabled configure
options and the reason why it's disabled - it has this descriptive
# --enable-incompatible-fork-abi # DO NOT WANT
- one link with a chinese translation of all configure scripts
- one hit is the #ffmpeg-devel stuff, where some ffmpeg developers and
myself discuss how useless this switch is
- one hit to a debian packaging discussion, which mentions that this
switch is useless and that they don't want it
And nothing else. That's where google actually stops delivering
results, saying that there are only duplicate hits left.
Conclusion: this switch is
3. not worth maintaining
So just drop the discussion about dropping the alias - can this horrible
ifdeffery hairball be removed entirely already?
