Ja, I think compiling Gem could be easier, but it looks like the sources
are prepared for cross-platform use. Still, reading the README.build
notes make it clear what needs done. IMO, the AuxLibs stuff needs a
'make install' too.

IOannes might be asleep now (he spent yesterday helping me compile Gem,
I think I wore him out ;) so I'll repeat what he advised me. Yes, you
want the Heroine Warrior libquicktime stuff; IOannes also suggested
using libmpeg3 instead of libmpeg, and there are some code bugs that he
may have fixed now in the sources. Also, the configure script needs a
little more attention. But remember, this version is an alpha release.

I've tested his examples for pix_film and pix_movie: pix_film worked
great, but I had problems with pix_movie that I'll investigate today.
