Yes, I have, on an LFS system. It's down to broken system 
headers. /usr/include/linux/cdrom.h includes <byteswap.h> which it 
shouldn't. You can fix this by commenting out that line (in 
<linux/cdrom.h>) and report it to RH, or you can move the inclusion 
of "libavutil/intreadwrite.h" up a few lines in stream/stream_dvd.c so 
it'll get included before <linux/cdrom.h>.
