-Libav does not build out-of-the-box with the packages the automated MinGW
-installer provides. It also requires coreutils to be installed and many other
-packages updated to the latest version. The minimum versions for some packages
-are listed below:
- at itemize
- at item bash 3.1
- at item msys-make 3.81-2 (note: not mingw32-make)
- at item w32api 3.13
- at item mingw-runtime 3.15
- at end itemize
-Libav automatically passes @code{-fno-common} to the compiler to work around
-a GCC bug (see @url{http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=37216}).
