Ah, I thought already I have misunderstood something. As far as I can
see, the note about faad in UPDATING should be extended since the
movement from internal to external mpeg4ip will cause some problems,
when people use portupgrade to do this:
mpeg4ip will be installed as dependency for faad and overwrites some
files from the old faad-port. When portupgrade deinstall faad for
updating it will erase these files accordingly and they will be missing
after the upgrade (quite similar to the problems with kde-update we had
in the past because of some files, which had been moved from kdenetworks
to base or was it the other way? don't remember).
I think this scenario won't happen, because mpeg4ip will fail during
compilation (it seems to be using the headers from old faad port, if it
is installed), but telling portupgrade-users about this would be much
cleaner, than just to note to deinstall faad if upgrading it fails.
Thanks and greetings,
