I have found a simpler way to make it possible to link packages not 
using pkg-config against FFmpeg in Debian:
The lib*-ffmpeg-dev packages now install symbolic links from the 
standard lib*.so library names to the suffixed ones.
This makes it possible to use the normal linker flags, e.g. '-lavcodec', 
to link against the FFmpeg libraries with '-ffmpeg' suffix.

Therefore I have closed the bugs with the pkg-config patches [1].

Thus, once FFmpeg is through NEW, most packages can just switch the 
build-dependencies to be build against FFmpeg.

Best regards,
