Several problems with prores decoders/encoders during compilation

Some problems i found with the different prores decoders and encoders.
First, the following configuration fails when linking the executables:
./configure --disable-everything --enable-decoder=prores
The error is as follows:
LD ffmpeg_g.exe libavcodec/libavcodec.a(proresdec2.o): In function `decode_init': D:\msys\1.0\home\jamal\ffmpeg/libavcodec/proresdec2.c:73: undefined reference to `ff_proresdsp_init' collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [ffmpeg_g.exe] Error 1
The problem is that libavcodec/Makefile is not compiling proresdsp.c when this decoder is enabled alone.
OBJS-$(CONFIG_PRORES_DECODER) += proresdec2.o
OBJS-$(CONFIG_PRORES_DECODER) += proresdec2.o proresdsp.o
Second, when for example configuring with
./configure --disable-decoders --enable-decoder=prores_lgpl
The compilation succeeds, but both ffmpeg and ffprobe crash when trying to read a file with a prores stream.
The problem is that proresdsp.c contains two functions used by the prores_lgpl decoder that only consider "CONFIG_PRORES_DECODER" but not "CONFIG_PRORES_LGPL_DECODER" during compilation.
In both cases
#if CONFIG_PRORES_DECODER | CONFIG_PRORES_LGPL_DECODER
Since the other prores decoder also uses these functions.
Third, when compiling for example with
./configure --disable-encoders --enable-encoder=prores_kostya
The compilation succeeds as well, but ffmpeg crashes when trying to encode using said encoder.
The problem is once again in proresdsp.c where two functions needed by the prores_kostya encoder checks for CONFIG_PRORES_ENCODER when it should check for CONFIG_PRORES_KOSTYA_ENCODER instead.
In both cases
Since the other prores encoder doesn't use functions from proresdsp.c at all.
I presume most of these problem were introduced after the decoders/encoders got a name change in one of the merges from libav. The prores and prores_anatoliy encoders are exactly the same thing for example, yet for some reason are two separate encoders.
Once again, found this thanks to Måns' --enable-random feature.
