I finally got around to poking at this again. Adding
__declspec(dllimport) is enough for the variable to be imported
properly. It's already exported. The attached patch defines a macro
called AV_DLLIMPORT, listed below:

#ifdef WIN32
#define AV_DLLIMPORT __declspec(dllimport)

I'm not sure this is the prettiest solution, but it works well enough on
my Ubuntu machine, in MSYS and in MSVC.

I also realized that there are more variables that won't be imported
properly in MSVC without such a macro. A quick search among the
installed headers indicate that at least the following variables are
part of the public API:


The attached patch adds AV_DLLIMPORT to those variables, and passes
