Nope.  I just use the standard PKG_CHECK_MODULES() macro (well, Benny's
wrapping of it) that everyone else uses.  This searches for a ".pc" file
describing the library and its dependencies, include paths, etc.  I
consider that file to be a "development file", as it's not useful to
anyone except for compiling and linking programs against that library,
and if SuSe is including that in the regular libxine package, rather
than libxine-devel pacakge, I consider that a bug in their package.  (In
other words, if SuSe got the packaging right, the configure script would
bail out as it should.)
