Bug Description

I'm compiling trunk on Debian Linux. I didn't have the libfaad-dev package installed, theres a check for this in the SConscript file, but its broken and doesnt warn you. Instead it attempts to compile and soundsourcem4a.cpp fails due to a missing header.

Looks like this area of the SConscript has been worked on recently, to provide compatility with versions 2.6 and 2.7 of libfaad. I think as a result of this, the basic check for the library has got broken.

Patch attached, compilation tested successfully against both libfaad 2.6 and 2.7 versions

This broke my build on Ubuntu 8.10. In my case, the solution is probably to fix our SConscript so it doesn't run configure checks before running targets. In other words, I don't want "scons makeubuntu" to check for ANY dependencies, because it ends up building inside a different (chrooted pbuilder) environment.
