That looks correct to me..

Actually, during the configure check, HAVE_SYS_TYPES will not be defined. 
He's really only checking for the presence of <linux/videodev.h>, so on
systems that don't have <sys/types.h>, <linux/videodev.h> won't exist
either (it's always present on Linux.)  So if the configure check fails
for either reason, HAVE_LINUX_VIDEODEV won't be defined--and that's what
he wants.
