Hi Tchan,

First off, I agree with you that avifile is only depending on qt2, not qt3 in
order to work correctly. However, I can also imagine some users that don't
want both qt2 and qt3 on their systems, and want avifile compile against qt3.
I thought this would be a good thread to point out the usefulness/need for an
"override" directory in the moonbase.

This would be a good example of having a "0local" directory.. I changed the
dependencies for avifile to qt3 (which compiled fine btw),  but everytime I
lin moonbase, it gets "reset" to qt-x11 (which is quite annoying).

Now I could create another name for avifile in zlocal, but that would break
optional dependencies on e.g. gst-plugins, DirectFB, MPlayer-skins and
