>From my experience on Linux with building and using a "local" (i.e.
with non-default location) libvidstab, ffmpeg's configure seems to
desire pkg-config for finding libvidstab. This may or may not be unlike
with other libraries.

So please check whether
a) you have /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/libvidstab.pc, and
b) pkg-config by default also searches /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig .

If b) does not apply, you might want to set the environment variable
PKG_CONFIG_PATH to point to /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig .

Oh, another thought: Does ffmpeg search /usr/local? But as I mentioned,
vid.stab support seems to require pkg-config.

Just guessing,
