I have tried building faac, but the problem is i use Mageia Cauldron,
and faac does not build in cauldron:

/usr/include/string.h:369:28: error: ambiguates old declaration ‘const
char* strcasestr(const char*, const char*)’

Colin even pointed a website that referred a solution to this and in
fact let the build go further but still broke.

So for who uses cauldron like me is stuck regarding faac use, of
course some developer could investigate this and could build faac and
put it available in some third party repo...
