- No longer build against system libraries as that Chromium works a lot better and crashes less on websites than with system libs
- Added package depot_tools.tar.gz as that the chromium build now requires it during the initial build phase. It just contains some utilities and nothing from it is being installed.
- If people want to install newer versions of the ffmpeg library then let them. This is what they want.
- Remove the buildscript from the sources
SolutionUpdate the affected chromium packages.
