This is what I get in my configure.log:

============ Checking for Video 4 Linux 2 TV interface ============

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <linux/types.h>
#include <linux/videodev2.h>
int main(void) { return 0; }

cc     -o /tmp/mplayer-conf-7213-4499.o /tmp/mplayer-conf-14243-4499.c
/tmp/mplayer-conf-14243-4499.c:3:29: linux/videodev2.h: No such file or

ldd /tmp/mplayer-conf-7213-4499.o
ldd: /tmp/mplayer-conf-7213-4499.o: No such file or directory

Result is: no

I am not sure why it wouldn't detect the v4l2 driver when I try to compile
from CVS if it works in a pre-packaged version.  My distribution is Startcom
Multimedia Edition 4.04

Which distribution? Press Ctrl+C after you see Checking for V4L2... no
and look inside configure.log for more clues.
