Tried again, with :
./configure --enable-external-faad --disable-internal-faad

and libfaad2 2.0-r3 installed (not yet cvs)

Bur compilation failed in fact :

libmpcodecs/libmpcodecs.a(ad_faad.o)(.text+0xc): In function `init':
: undefined reference to `NeAACDecOpen'
libmpcodecs/libmpcodecs.a(ad_faad.o)(.text+0x3f): In function `init':
: undefined reference to `NeAACDecGetCurrentConfiguration'
libmpcodecs/libmpcodecs.a(ad_faad.o)(.text+0x7e): In function `init':
: undefined reference to `NeAACDecInit2'
libmpcodecs/libmpcodecs.a(ad_faad.o)(.text+0x174): In function `init':
: undefined reference to `NeAACDecClose'
(etc etc etc etc)

What is missing ?
part of the AAC libs, isn't it ? (headers or something ?)
