libdvdread, libdvdnav

Hmmm, I have been at a disadvantage. The libdvdread and libdvdnav packages used in T2 are old -- they get them from dead project sites. This may have had a negative effect when I am compiling media players.

The latest versions are here (4.1.3):

When I compiled mplayer, it used internal libdvdnav, external libdvdread (0.9.7) -- that latter one may be trouble.

This is where T2 get their source packages:

Anyway, I have placed both updated libs into Quirky, in preparation for the next round of compiling media players.
