I wanted to see 4k and 5k themes and possibly titler changes... but ...
I was not so lucky. It still segfaults for me at very start (32-bit build) 
and waits for something forever if started from root

Chnages to make it compile included adding 

#include <cstring>

in cinelerra-7.1/cinelerra/file.h and cinelerra-7.1/cinelerra/videodevice.h

and also small change disabling vaapi and vdpau for embedded copy of ffmpeg:

# 052906
cd thirdparty/ffmpeg* && ./configure --enable-pthreads --enable-gpl --disable-ffplay --extra-cflags=-I$TOPDIR/$LIBFAAD_PATH/include --extra-libs=-L$TOPDIR/$LIBFAAD_PATH/libfaad/.libs/ --disable-ffserver
 --disable-vaapi --disable-vdpau --disable-ffplay



plus modification of "install" target

<------>$(MAKE) -C plugins install
<------>cp libmpeg3/$(OBJDIR)/mpeg3dump libmpeg3/$(OBJDIR)/mpeg3peek libmpeg3/$(OBJDIR)/mpeg3toc  libmpeg3/$(OBJDIR)/mpeg3cat bin
<------>cp quicktime/$(OBJDIR)/make_streamable bin
<------>$(MAKE) -C po install
<------>$(MAKE) -C doc install
<------>cp COPYING README bin
<------>cp thirdparty/festival/src/main/festival bin
<------>cp -a thirdparty/festival/lib bin/
<------>cp -a models bin
<------>cd bin && find -name '.svn' -exec rm -r {} \; -prune
<------>cp cinelerra/Cinelerra_factory bin


cinelerra-7.1/build/Makefile.cinelerra (OBJDIR was hardcoded to x86_64)
