snowenc.c is still using it in some way, look for FF_API_EMU_EDGE in
the code. I didn't look closer though, maybe it can be removed, maybe

In version.h

master is still at 57 so it probably will be after 2.9 (or will it be
called 3.0?) that this happens. In any case, once that is removed it's
also trivial to make gst-libav build again.

removing some lines of code in those cases. Unless you feel like
providing patches :)

We're going to release 1.6.3 some time this week, when I upload that to
sid I'll include the patches. Why so impatient? ffmpeg 2.9/3.0 is not
even released yet, no snapshot is in experimental, nothing :)
