djbfft in pkg-multimedia SVN, new revision of a52dec

Dear team mates,

I have prepared a package for the djbfft library and just injected it 
into the unstable trunk in pkg-multimedia SVN. I have applied a 
(slightly modified) patch from Gentoo to build the shared library and 
chose the package version as a SONAME for the library (which may be 
changed to what you believe is appropriate, of course).

Please have a look at the package, review it and upload if 
appropriate. I have allready tried to build our a52dec package against 
the shared libdjbfft (--enable-djbfft) and it seems to work.

In this context, I'd like to have a new revision of a52dec uploaded to 
unstable with this additional library enabled. Do you consider this 
allright? There are also some other changes that I'd like to commit 
for the a52dec package, i.e. convert debian/rules to CDBS and make it 
lintian clean. Should I do this before or after we introduced the 
libdjbfft dependency - or in the same revision?


PS: Not to forget, the djbfft build system is *insane*!
