Dear Carl ,

Hi , thank you for your prompt reply , the package libass-dev is in my 
repository but simply following the 
https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide/Ubuntu guide I can't see 
which step it is that actually 'loads' that libass-dev execution module 
into the configure process , 'once the penny drops' and I understand I 
should be able to add libass-dev and other missing modules should they 
also occur . Thank you ,

Derek Hopley
