I don't think that this is needed for CVS HEAD. I put in a workaround for the
file which I noticed had a problem: since the problem only occurs with -O1 or
higher, -Os is forced for that file.

(Look in src/libffmpeg/libavcodec/i386/Makefile.am and you'll see the
workaround. BTW, if somebody wants to play with -f* and no-* to see which
combination of options eliminates the problem, by all means do so - and tell
us, the ffmpeg people and the gcc people if you find it :-) )

However, if you're using xine-lib 1.1.1 (doable, but you need to modify a
patch from an older vdr-xine), you will need this on i386 or you'll need to
grab the workaround from CVS HEAD (and don't forget to re-run automake).

Don't be overly suspicious where it's not warranted.
