#23372 closed defect (wontfix)

ffmpeg-0.5 rev5, --extra-ldflags=-headerpad_max_install_names needed to be add to Portfile to be able to use install_name_tool

Reported by: tero.siironen@… Owned by: dbevans (David B. Evans)

This can be fixed by adding following parameter to ffmpeg's configure options:


After compiling ffmpeg again, install_name_tool can be used with libavcodec.dylib just fine.
