--- Comment #3 from Alexandre Demers <alexandre.f.demers at gmail.com> ---
That's something I hadn't noticed. However, it still bugs me. Why would this
component deal with its installation path differently from the others. Let's
have a look at opencl, vdpau and egl :
  --with-vdpau-libdir=DIR directory for the VDPAU libraries
                          directory for auxiliary libraries used by the OpenCL
                          implementation [default=${libdir}/opencl]
                          directory for EGL drivers [[default=${libdir}/egl]]

And then we have omx :
  --with-omx-libdir=DIR   directory for the OMX libraries

It seems omx is one of a kind by not using something ${libdir}/bellagio. By
doing this small modification, a user wouldn't be surprise to have this only
component install not in the libdir he asked for, but he would still be able to
set a different path if needed.

I'm reopening this bug so that the default libdir for omx be set to
default=${libdir}/bellagio, as expected from other components. That way, no
surprise for anybody because everything will follow the same rule, but the user
will keep a way to change specifically this installation folder by using

I'll propose a patch for this modification later today.
