Hi Guillaume,

I am sorry but compiling with gcc 4 is not an option to have a binary  
running on 10.2 -> 10.4. Compiling with gcc 3 is mandatory. Please  
fix your patch as this make ffmpeg source unusable for systems older  
than 10.3.
ffmpeg was compiling fine with gcc 3 until now, I don't see why it  
shouldn't continue...
