Package: ffmpeg-debian
Version: 0.svn20080303
Severity: wishlist

It would be helpful if there was some documentation included on how to build the
unstripped ffmpeg libraries.

I read a note found in bug #508524, but it was not entirely correct, at least
for version 0.svn20080303. The correct steps I found were,

$ apt-get build-dep ffmpeg-debian
$ apt-get source ffmpeg-debian
$ cd ffmpeg-debian_0.svn20090303
$ fakeroot debian/rules get-orig-source
$ sed -i '1s/ffmpeg-debian/ffmpeg/' debian/changelog
$ fakeroot debian/rules debian/control
$ cd ..
$ tar xzf ffmpeg_0.svn20090303.orig.tar.gz
$ cd ffmpeg
$ cp -r ../ffmpeg-debian_0.svn20090303/debian .
$ {debuild,dpkg-buildpackage} args ...
