live555: That build works, but it takes the latest from git and was 
never meant to be taken up in slackbuilds.org. I just made it that way 
because I got sick and tired of updating the development versions.

Virtualbox: I don't use the addons, so I didn't need to touch those 
slackbuilds, but thanks for the catch!

vlc: lots of configure flags removed because it had a major version 
update. It should now be autodetecting a lot of those flags.

Anyway, it's was just a pointer so that your not possibly doing double 
work. That repo is filled with my fixes to keep everything running 
smoothly. I'm not expecting you to mindlessly merge everything (like 
virtualbox for example), so no offence taken ;-)
