This is strange. I double checked my build and the only change I
made besides modifying vlc's version to 2.2.1 was to disable the
freerdp patches. vlc built fine and runs well, if a bit slowly in
the vm I'm running it on right now. This is on 14.1 with only
official updates and SBo packages. Any SBo packages modified have
been annotated at my github repo mentioned earlier in the thread.
I tried to be careful not to modify anything that didn't need it
and also to document the changes when they seemed needed.
