ok, I have a very simple makefile that converts the reference code
into a library,
given that you can compile the reference code, and some updated glue code.
I'll work it into shape and post if somebody is interested but I had
to hack a little
bit the reference code to make it compile under the infamous MacOS linker :(

I prefer to focus on the SoC decoder since the reference code is a float
 implementation and thus as Michael Niedermayer wrote:
"ok, if theres no fixed point reference, then theres also no point in
writing one for regression/compliance tests."
