Hi Frank,

Sorry to be so slow in responding but I just found time to revisit this.
There still seems to be a problem.  Disabling libvpx using the configure 
statement doesn't seem to be acceptable even though it is stated as a 
valid switch.  RHEL/OEL 6 and Debian 6 don't have a new enough version 
of libvpx to be able to build & the switch does not allow me to proceed. 
It tells me that it is an unrecognized option.

I snipped out all of the rest of the options to save space, but it says 
that is the switch to use.

/trunk$ ./configure --disable-libvpx

Unrecognized option "--disable-libvpx"

Usage: ./configure [OPTIONS]...

   --disable-libvpx         don't use libvpx for video capturing
