Paul Eggleton - Dec. 20, 2013, 2:55 p.m.
There is a separate libpostproc recipe in meta-oe for use with 9.x and
later versions of libav for those few that need libpostproc; however if
you just add meta-oe and try to build libpostproc without selecting the
libav 9.x version recipe, you'll be building the libpostproc recipe
together with libav 0.8.x, which provides its own libpostproc; this
leads to confusing errors at packaging time. In order to flag up that
these conflict more appropriately, add libpostproc to PROVIDES
explicitly so that you at least get a multiple providers error at the
start of the build.

Fixes [YOCTO #5335].
