Hi all,

I have been trying to install mkvtoolnix and it keeps failing at the linking stage with the following error:

mtx::xml::ebml_chapters_converter_c::fix_display(libmatroska::KaxChapterDisplay&) const in libmtxcommon.a(ebml_chapters_converter.o)

All I can figure out is that it is due to linking against the wrong library, but how do you fix it??

Any help appreciated!
