Well, this is not exactly satisfactory, especially when you want to add some
optimization for a new architecture...

For the moment, I did my own Makefile. While doing that, I found out that
the two following files seem to be useless : gen_draw.c and gen_uptime.c (at
least they do not compile on Linux).

And of course, this gives me a library that segfaults as soon as I start
trying to decode something.... Ah the joy of using bleeding edge stuff :-)

Hi all,

Just for your information, there are still some small issues in the
documentation as the descripion of the DEC_PARAM struct is not up to date as
it : 
 - still mentions the color_depth field that is now removed (you even have
   an important note about it)
 - do not describe either the 'time_incr' parameter (no idea what THAT
   parameter means) nor the 'buffers' parameter.
But well, the example at the end is OK, so it's not so important :-)
