I remember you from the FFmpeg on Windows forum. Sorry I couldn't help, 
but I've never tried WinCE before.
Why aren't you configuring with --enable-mingwce? That way, the correct 
file extensions are used (that might influence something) and if you 
have MSVC, it tries to create the .lib files. (That is, if you're on 
You can also use the static libraries (.a files) with MSVC++ as if they 
were static .lib files.
Check http://arrozcru.no-ip.org/ffmpeg_wiki/tiki-index.php?page=MSVC to 
see how to use the libraries with MSVC++.
I have no idea how that will work with WinCE, but it might help.
Please add anything to the wiki, if you can. It might really help other 
people that come accross the same issues.
