Bug#495730: ldd check when building vlc

Package: vlc
Version: 0.8.6.h-1
Severity: normal

The check to find if a vlc-nox plugin is linked with libX11 uses ldd.
This will check the dependencies using system path by default - thus using /usr/lib/libvlc* instead of the newly built libvlc.

A possible patch is the following:
	  if LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$(CURDIR)/debian/tmp/usr/lib ldd $$file | grep -q libX11; then \

please note the use of LD_LIBRARY_PATH. A side-effect is that ldd, under fakeroot, will exhibit a warning saying it will not 
take into account symbols from libfakeroot-sysv, which fine IMO.
