Tim was referring to the libraries you have listed in your previous post
like fontconfig, freetype, glib-2.0, etc. You should make sure they have
been compiled with "--enable-static --disable-shared" or some similar

The following script contains information on the static build options
for a list of libraries, helpful even when you do not cross-compile:

BTW: I'm building my ffmpeg win32/win64 executables on a GNU/Linux
virtual machine using the mingw64 cross-compiler. This way the
environment tools like shell, make, yasm, etc. are installed a lot easier.
