Wrong declaration of strcasestr() in mpeg4ip.h

Bug Description

The declaration of strcasestr() in /usr/include/mpeg4ip.h is wrong in Ubuntu 9.10, thus the library is not usable in Ubuntu Karmic.

Reproduction (one line of code typed in via stdin, terminated by Ctrl-D):
$ g++ -x c++ -
#include <mp4.h>
In file included from /usr/include/mp4.h:35,
                 from <stdin>:1:
/usr/include/mpeg4ip.h:126: error: new declaration ‘char* strcasestr(const char*, const char*)’
/usr/include/string.h:367: error: ambiguates old declaration ‘const char* strcasestr(const char*, const char*)’

Just omit the wrong declaration, strcasestr() is declared in string.h, which is included by mpeg4ip.h.
