(I believe) since dirac takes strange library configurations, 
pkg-config is needed to correctly detect it (which normally is 
very hardly avoided within FFmpeg's configure script).
But before re-installing dirac, please ask yourself if you need it:
It is known to be extra-slow, if you really need dirac encoding, 
use libschroedinger.
