Now that I'm back on a recent install, I've looked at what mpg123
installed : the only file I had been "preserving" was
output_alsa.la (in /usr/lib/mpg123/) but I see that this build
actually installed output_{alsa,dummy,oss,pulse}.so and its only .la
was /usr/lib/libmpg123.la.

So, it seems to now install correct .so files and that part of my
functions script has become obsolete.  I'll remove it.
