 I'm trying to burn custom ass files to the video, file that includes the
 subtitles and other styling features.

 While encoding i'm receiving warnings as such:
 fontconfig: Selected font is not the requested one: 'DejaVu Sans Bold' !=

 The end result is a video with subtitles and everything but with wrong
 fonts. looks more like system's default fonts.

 I'm using Ubuntu 12.04, Compiled FFmpeg with GIT using this guide:
 All the fonts are installed on my system.

 The command:
 ivrx at ns4006550:/home/ivrx/encoding/sp2$  ffmpeg -ss 00:00:00 -i sp2.mp4 -t
 00:01:00 -c:v libx264 -c:a copy -preset slow -tune film -profile:v high
 -crf 18 -vf 'ass=1.ass' output7.mp4

 Output logs:
 http://lawl.it/ffmpeglog99.txt -- beware! used "-v 9 -loglevel 99" on this

 What can i do to make ffmpeg select the fonts that specified in ass files?

 ffmpeg version git-2012-12-25-1be8d0f
