In the meantime, if gm could be modified to dynamically add the codec
things would improve quite a lot.

After this, anyone with a h.263 enabled openh323 would get gm with
openh323 for free.

Now, at least for rpm based distributions, it should be fairly easy to
     1. Make a rpm of the libavcodec suitable for openh323
     2. Make the spec file allow for the rpm to be built with --define
        'rfc2190 1'

This would mean if someone asks 'how do I make gnomemeeting work with
h.263' we could say, install openh323libavcodec.rpm and rebuild the
openh323 rpm using the command
rpmbuild --rebuild --define 'rfc2190 1' openh323-x.y.z.src.rpm

I don't know about other package management solutions, but this should
be easy enough here.

Also, when openh323 does get plugin codecs, there would be minimal
changes, users would just not have the need to recompile openh323
