Hmm... Apparently it was never trivial to install libfaac on MinGW.

The FFmpeg Windows Help website [0] was down for some time last month,
but now it's up again, and thanks to 45tripp the wiki is also back up.

These are the steps I wrote some (long) time ago:

tar zxfv faac-1.26.tar.gz
patch -p0 < faac-1.26.patch
cd faac
sh bootstrap
./configure --prefix=/mingw --enable-static --disable-shared
make LDFLAGS="-no-undefined"
make install

You need MSYS DTK for that (and possibly you have to update autotools
as well) because you must re-run bootstrap after patching. The patch
is attached here in case the website goes down again at some later
point in time.
