[FFmpeg-user] ffmpeg.c:4492: undefined reference to `_avdevice_register_all'

I'm really trying to get this bug: 
https://ffmpeg.org/trac/ffmpeg/ticket/282 resolved.

It seems to not even be linking avdevice.

I tried running: i686-w64-mingw32-gcc -Llibavdevice -Wl,--as-needed 
-Wl,--warn-common -Wl,-rpath-link=libavdevice -o ffmpeg_g.exe ffmpeg.o 
cmdutils.o -lavdevice 2>&1 | grep "_avdevice_register_all"

just for a basic link, but that even fails with:

"ffmpeg.c:4492: undefined reference to `_avdevice_register_all'"

Also: i686-w64-mingw32-nm "./libavdevice/avdevice.dll" | grep 

Returns: 6d7814c0 T _avdevice_register_all

Any ideas?

I'm using the latest FFmpeg and trying to compile with MinGW-w64, the 
problem seems to only happen with "--disable-static --enable-shared" and 
when SDL is found. (Though the bug doesn't seem related to SDL so it's 
stumping me).

Any help would be great.
