Hi Luis,

Ok, I didn't use an ebuild for vdr-xine (which is just a patched xine-lib). 
Unfortunately, the xine-lib in portage does not include this patch. So I made 
a little hack : I extracted the xine-lib sources (in /usr/portage/distfiles), 
applied the patch (the one form the the vdr-xine plugin), repacked the 
sources and then moved it back to portage/distfiles. Then you have to modify 
the digest files in your portage tree of course. This can easily done 
with "ebuild ....xine-lib-....ebuild digest".
After that you can simply emerge xine-lib and the already patched sources get 
compiled as usual, except for the compile error I posted to the last 
yesterday. Maybe you have better luck :)
