Right, ffmpeg wasn't actually built but with that hint I could get it  
passing --disable-ffserver --disable-ffplay. Platform is a recent  
Ubuntu on x86.

Now another issue has arosen, I compiled lame-3.97 and installed  
before, and compiled ffmpeg with --enable-mp3lame (the objective is  
to convert video to flv for a website). The output of ./configure  
lists it as enabled:

   zlib enabled     yes
   libgsm enabled   no
   mp3lame enabled  yes
   libnut enabled   no

but lame is not found:

   fxn at larry:~/tmp$ ffmpeg -i trailer.wmv -acodec mp3 trailer.flv
   ffmpeg: error while loading shared libraries: libmp3lame.so.0:
   cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

albeit it lives here:

   fxn at larry:~/tmp$ ls /usr/local/lib/*lame* -1

Isn't that a standard location?
