Since only libavcodec is being checked out, this one command will do the
cp -rf libavcodec/* main/libavcodec/
But it may add to the confusion instead of reducing confusion bcos
different people will have their libavcodec (from ffmeg) and main (from
mplayer) in different locations. My solution assumes both main and
libavcodec have the same parent directory but what if thats not true for
another user ?
