[FFmpeg-user] ffmpeg windows build

Well I am making good progress with this, but have stuck on an odd 
problem with librtmp.

It compiles fine, both with and without OpenSSL support.

However when trying to --enable-librtmp ffmpeg ./configure fails because 
it cannot find -ldl.

Now this is curious because I am doing a static only build, so libdl.a 
should not be needed as far as I can see, but for some reason ffmpeg 
wants it (and it doesn't exist in the cross compile toolchain)

I also notice that even when librtmp is compiled without openSSL 
support, ffmpeg still insists on having libssl.a and libcrpto.a to hand 
(and libdl.a) if you want to include librtmp. this is an error surely?
