[PD] advise on making mjpeg, pdp and libquicktime happy

hello dear all,
pardon me for cross posting this but the issue seems to be somewhat
awkward - for the last several days i was trying to get [pdp_qt] take my
mjpeg video files but was miserably failing:
pdp_qt: video stream found (640x480 pixels, 6 fps, 897 frames, MJPG codec)
pdp_qt: WARNING: unsupported video codec
pdp_qt: ERROR: no usable video stream found.
i would probably have given up at this very point but got totally
abscessed when it worked in *pure:dyne* 2.3.66 ! there i can load my
mjpegs easily, codec is there everything is working (great job btw).
since then i tried to match all relative libs and bins in my ubunty
feisty with p:d, however it wouldn't solve the issue....
i had compiled all the parts from most recent sources,
pdp-0.12.5 compiled against libquicktime-0.9.10:
danja at t43:~/work/PD-parts/libquicktime-0.9.10$ ./configure --enable-gpl
gtk >= 2.4.0: Yes
GPL plugins Enabled
danja at t43:~/work/PD-parts/pdp-0.12.5-test-7$ ./configure
checking for lqt_decode_video in -lquicktime... yes
checking for glXSwapBuffers in -lGL... yes
checking for SDL_Init in -lSDL... yes
target is linux
used configure options:
also tried the current ubuntu packages of libquicktime and pd-extended
from http://autobuild.puredata.info/auto-build/latest/ with no result.
i have a clue that libquicktime is not making use of it's 'plugins' to
load non-qt files, but i can't trace the problem...
i really hate to convert my mjpegs in to .mov, please help me not to do it.
