Hi, as a learning exercise I am trying to package blender-2.49a for
factory (see https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=525298 ) and my
first obstacle is a dependency on ffmpeg which is a packman / videolan
package. What do I do in this case?


You can build against my home:RedDwarf:fakePackman project.

Thanks, but this has to be submitted to factory, are dependencies like
this allowed? The spec file had a conditional statement to include
ffmpeg but version 2.28a didn't include it.

Uhm no, official packages can't depend on external ones.
But yes, you can make it conditional. See Audacity from Factory as an
example
(https://build.opensuse.org/package/view_file?file=audacity.spec&package=audacity&project=openSUSE%3AFactory)

At really the best thing to do is to make it conditional so openSUSE
and Packman (that also packages it:
http://packman.links2linux.org/package/blender) can share the same
spec file.
Talk to Andrea Florio about cooperating in the mantainership of the
package. libxine is already comantained between Packman and openSUSE
(http://lizards.opensuse.org/2008/09/12/conditional-features-aka-use-flags/).
