#37347: x264 opportunistically links against ffmpeg
 Reporter:  cal@…   |      Owner:  devans@…
     Type:  defect  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal  |  Milestone:
Component:  ports   |    Version:  2.1.2
 Keywords:          |       Port:
 x264's ./configure script automatically picks up a number of libraries and
 links against them if present, but does not declare a dependency. In
 Detail, those are:

  - libswscale (./configure, line 811)
  - libavformat, libavcodec (./configure, line 827)
  - libz, libbz2 (./configure, line 833)

 The x264 Portfile should disable linking against these libraries (or
 enable linking against them explicitly and declare a dependency, which
 however doesn't seem to be a good idea seeing that most of those are
 provided by ffmpeg, which already has a x264 dependency):

 configure.args-append --disable-avs --disable-swscale --disable-lavf
 --disable-ffms --disable-gpac
