(configure line missing)

If you believe you found a regression in how FFmpeg's configure script names the
compiled libraries, please run git bisect to find the change
introducing the regression.

Note that versions 3.3 and 3.4 are old and get even less support than other

Please find out what top-posting means and avoid it here.
