I can confirm this on a 32-bit Ubuntu Natty VM with:
ffmpeg -i IronMan.mkv -vcodec libx264 -preset medium -profile \
baseline -crf 24 -strict experimental -acodec aac -y ~/output.mp4
ffmpeg version N-31478-g5dc6bd8, Copyright (c) 2000-2011 the FFmpeg

[NULL @ 0xa194720] [Eval @ 0xbfc2e17c] Undefined constant or missing

"baseline" [NULL @ 0xa194720] Error setting option profile to value
...and some users on ubuntuforums.org have mentioned the same issue.
I'm not sure what it is from 5dc6bd86 that is causing the issue.
