[FFmpeg-user] Compiling independent ffmpeg

The package liblensfun1 is a dependency of liblensfun-dev. Maybe you used
aptitude or used apt-get autoremove at a later time to remove any orphaned
package? If it got installed as a dependency of liblensfun-dev, it will no
longer be a dependency of any package after you uninstalled that. The
library liblensfun1.so.1 that you were missing is part of the liblensfun1
package, not the -dev package. The same applies to the other ones. It's
safe to remove the -dev packages, but you will have to ensure that the
corresponding runtime packages are installed, and they are easily lost if
you don't explicitly install them or mark them as a dependency of something
