Install MP4Box

MP4Box is a multimedia package used for  conversion, splitting, hinting, dumping and others.

zlib is a software library used for data compression. zlib was written by Jean-Loup Gailly and Mark Adler and is an abstraction of the DEFLATE compression algorithm used in their gzip file compression program.

    Works really smooth until you get to this point:
    # make lib
    # make apps
    # make install lib
    # make install
    # cp bin/gcc/ /usr/lib

    The make lib gives this error:

    make[1]: *** [isomedia/sample_descs.o] Aborted
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/gpac/src’
    make: *** [lib] Error 2

    Thanks anyways!
