I'm trying to switch from mencoder to ffmpeg as Carl suggested.  In
order to do this, I have to rebuild ffmpeg with libx264.  After my first
attempt failed, I got the latest version of x264, built it, and installed

    git clone git:://git.videolan.org/x264.git
    make install

There were no errors or warnings.  However, the /usr/include/264.h file wasn't updated.
That version is still 107.

Then I tried to configure ffmpeg
    ./configure --enable-gpl --enable-libx264
and received this error
    ERROR: libx264 must be installed and version must be >= 0.118

How to proceed?

Thank You.
