good idea to split the libraries

If e.g. AEC/Jitterbuffer can be used with other codecs such as G711,
without linking to the speexcodec lib, I think people will reuse the
Speex jitterbuffer implentation and avoid writing their own.

what about:

   libspeexpreproc  Preprocessor
   libspeexaec      Acoustic Echo Cancellation
   libspeexjitter   Jitter buffer
   libspeexcodec    Speex codec itself

it would also make sense if the makefile/configure script of the
applications using the Speex libraries can automatically detect
which libraries/header files are installed on the system.
