libavresample is deprecated since 2017; preventing linked compilation on current Debian and Ubuntu
TVHeadend's FFmpeg support depends on libavresample, which has been deprecated since 2017 (see https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFmpeg/blob/master/doc/APIchanges#L531). As of 4.3.1-9 in Debian and 4.4-5ubuntu1 in Ubuntu, libavresample is no longer being built, making it impossible to build TVHeadend with FFmpeg support on these distributions.

i compile tvheadend for arch without libavresample for quite a while and did not notice anything failing including transcoding. it will complain like a thousand times it is missing during compiling but apparently is not actually needed. it might simply be a matter of removing it as a dependency from the build scripts and nothing else.
