B Watson: If you don't have any issues with distributing the FMOD API
source, then you might consider treating the tarball as part of
gzdoom's source and just untarring the fmod tarball into gzdoom's
source directory before building gzdoom. That will ensure that gzdoom
is built with the latest version of FMOD that it was tested with.

There's a comment about that build method here:
