This doesn't get most of the useful encoders such as libx264, libopus, 
libfdk_aac (if it's a personal build), libvorbis, libtheora, libvpx, 
libmp3lame, the list goes on. While FFmpeg provides a very, very nice 
decoder base and format base, most of the super-valuable encoders are 
external (though FFmpeg can still use them :D).

Though I digress: I'd just use ./configure --enable-lib{stuff you want} 
and then run make, followed by make install (as root), but make sure 
you're using the current git master (protip: if you've already cloned 
then you don't need to clone again, navigate to the source tree and use 
git pull git://{the url}. This only pulls the changes.)
