[FFmpeg-user] FFmpeg /x264 building for Android

Hi again,

No, I didn't use the old version for any advantages or disadvantages, I have made my way through an existing script to actually start understanding it. As I have presented in the first post, I used the script for Ndk5b, and altered it (mainly the paths) for different version of NDK and ffmpeg. To sum up, I have compiled ffmpeg and libx264 for NDK r8 as well as NDK r7. Lastly, thanks a lot for the license notice, i will fix it right away. 

My problem is that I can't seem to link x264 to ffmpeg. I know that this should be done via flags. I have also checked the script posted  https://github.com/guardianproject/android-ffmpeg here and I have changed the flags accordingly, but to no avail. I am basically asking here for anything that I might have done wrong, which might be related to syntax, directory placement or paths/flags. As I said earlier, I am just a beginner in this and probably skipping something simple.

Do you see any problems with current git head or did 
somebody give you the (wrong) impression that old 
(released) versions have any advantages?
If it can't be avoided, please consider either 
suggesting patches for back-porting that you 
believe should be back-ported or, even better, have 
a public git clone where you do the back-ports and 
ask for a merge.

Was the problem with pkg-config ever reported on trac?

And please finally fix the license header for 
vf_redact.c - the FFmpeg binary produced with 
your script cannot be legally distributed!
