I am having trouble emerging gst-plugins-libav and gst-plugins-ffmpeg and noticed a message similar to this on both packages: I wonder how to build these plugins without using the underlying library like the warning wants me to do...

configure: WARNING:
======================================================================
WARNING: you have chosen to build gst-libav against a random
external version of Libav instead of building it against the tested
internal Libav snapshot that is included with gst-libav.

This is a very bad idea. So bad in fact that words cannot express
just how bad it is. Suffice to say that it is BAD.

The GStreamer developers cannot and will not support a gst-libav
built this way. Any bug reports that indicate there is an external
version of Libav involved will be closed immediately without further
investigation.

The reason such a setup can't be supported is that the Libav API
and ABI is in constant flux, yet there aren't any official releases
of the Libav library to develop against. This makes it impossible
to guarantee that gst-libav will work reliably, or even compile,
with a randomly picked version Libav. Even if gst-libav compiles
and superficially appears to work fine against your chosen external
Libav version, that might just not be the case on other systems, or
even the same system at a later time, or when using decoders,
encoders, demuxers or muxers that have not been tested.

Please do not create or distribute binary packages of gst-Libav
that link against an external libav. Thank you!

I put >=gst-plugins-ffmpeg-0.10.13-r1 into /etc/portage/package.mask

This solved it for me.

Thanks
