Please understand that there is nothing "stable" about 
FFmpeg releases (or, more exactly, nothing "unstable" 
about current git head), releases are simply snapshots 
for distributors.
Is the problem reproducible with "./configure && make ffmpeg"?
Does "ffmpeg -f lavfi -i testsrc out.png" produce a file 
out.png (is only the console output missing)?

At least the following options are useless in your configure 
line (from a quick look):

Most people agree that the quality of libvo-aac is worse 
than the native aac encoder.

Why do you need --enable-nonfree ?
(I may miss something.)

Some of the external libraries that you include are very 
rarely needed.
