mpd fails to start after upgrading giving the message:

A new version of faad2 was installed along with mpd. This version does not provide but rather Just needs a recompile.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
mpd 0.14.2-1
faad2 2.7-1

Can't reproduce on at least x86_64. Be sure to update everything, not just faad2 and mpd.

Can not replicate on i686 either.

Make sure that you are using the mpd from the repo, i.e. not a self compiled package.

Anyway, sorry for the noise. =/
