The libmad package was also on the Qtopia download page, so it
shouldn't be that much of a problem to provide it.
More ok would be to not compile it in at all and provide it as a
package. I'll try later on to see if I can build libmad just as a
Lorn, any tips on a qbuild.pro file for the libmad plugin?
