[Ffmpeg-devel] Configure with msys/mingw

- I am administrating a project that uses ffmpeg: Virtual Choreographer,
a tool for interactive 3D rendering. I suppose that this project
could be added to the list of projects using ffmpeg at

- I have only recently moved to the svn version of ffmpeg
and used to rely on the stable version 0.4.9 before.
With the current svn version, I have problems for the
compilation of ffmpeg under mingw at the configuration step.
As suggeted in a preceding post,
I have moved to bash 2.05, but it does not help.

The problem is the following, when I configure ffmpeg
I get the following error from the config.err log file:

-o /tmp/ffmpeg-conf-21700-2096-15686 /tmp/ffmpeg-conf-28572-2096-21498.o -lm
c:\mingw\bin\..\lib\gcc-lib\mingw32\3.2.3\..\..\..\..\mingw32\bin\ld.exe: Can't
open output def file $(@:.dll=.def)
C compiler test failed.

I think that the shell does not interprete correctly the $(@:.dll=.def)
parameter of --output-def.

Any help would be valuable and would allow me to keep on providing
an executable version for Win32 that can play video using ffmpeg.
