Comment (by hspedro):

 Hi @serverok,

 From your config.log, the issue seems to be that `pkg-config` did not
 found a vorbis
 pkg on your system. Generally, the libraries come with a .pc file that
 indicates to
 pkg-config necessary variables. This vorbis.pc file should be copied to
 pkg-config path
 during make install. I ran your procedure and that was the case for me:

 180 make[2]: Nothing to be done for 'install-exec-am'.
 181  /bin/mkdir -p '/usr/local/share/aclocal'
 182  /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 vorbis.m4 '/usr/local/share/aclocal'
 183  /bin/mkdir -p '/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig'
 184  /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 vorbis.pc vorbisenc.pc vorbisfile.pc

 Check if during your `make install` this procedure was executed. You could
 also check
 with `pkg-config --exists --print-errors vorbis && echo $?`, if it returns
 0 then vorbis
 was found by `pkg-config`.

 In anyway this doesn't seem to be a problem in `ffmpeg` itself.
