- clarify (i hope) faad and faac plugin licencing
Original commit message from CVS: - clarify (i hope) faad and faac plugin licencing - move flac from LGPL to Xiph BSD like license (new license since 1.1.1) - add URL for taking (their SVN repository) - add version to required libsidplay (siddec won't compile against anything but 1.36.x)

-Faad/faac seems to be under a commercial license. Plus licensing seems
-to be different if using FAAD or FAAD2 as the underlying library. Not
-sure how this should be described here or handled in gst-inspect.
+faad's license depends on its major version :
+ - for FAAD1 : it is LGPL
+ - for FAAD2 : it is GPL
+look at these pages for more information on licenses :
+http://www.audiocoding.com/modules/wiki/?page=FAAD2

+by default, GStreamer faad plugin would compile against FAAD2 if available.
+it falls back to FAAD1 if not.
