I have the case where a52_init needs an argument.

Output of ./configure
checking for a52_init in -la52... yes
checking a52dec/a52.h usability... yes
checking a52dec/a52.h presence... yes
checking for a52dec/a52.h... yes
checking whether a52_init requires an argument... yes

* config.h.  Generated from config.h.in by configure.  */
/* config.h.in.  Generated from configure.ac by autoheader.  */

/* Define to 1 if an argument must be passed to a52_init. */
/* #undef A52_INIT_NEEDS_ARG */

Result of compilation:
ac3.c: In function ‘mpeg3_new_ac3’:
ac3.c:19:18: error: too few arguments to function ‘a52_init’
   result->state = a52_init();
In file included from ac3.c:5:0:
/usr/include/a52dec/a52.h:134:15: note: declared here
  a52_state_t * a52_init (uint32_t mm_accel);

Please fix and resend.
