I have built ffmpeg 6.1 and it produces the same result (same error messages).
Since I am unfamiliar with the ffmpeg package overall, all I can think of
are the following possibilities:

1.  ffmpeg is missing (although not complaining about missing) some file
    that it needs.  (A library perhaps?)
2.  there is a duplication of file names in the filesystem that is causing 
    ffmpeg to consult the wrong file.
3.  ffmpeg just cannot process my file.
4.  ???

Short of going into the source code and trying to figure out what ffmpeg 
is trying to do and guessing why it cannot do it, I don't know what
else to try.  (Well, I guess there's the debugger.)
