I am trying to build an LGPL version of ffmpeg.
I am following instructions from https://www.ffmpeg.org/platform.html
section 4.3 4.2 Microsoft Visual C++ or Intel C++ Compiler for Windows

Let me know if there is a better instructions list to use.
I got as far as
./configure --toolchain=msvc
After I ran msys.bat it started I believe MINGW32 bash in which I went to
the directory where I downloaded source from
http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/ and I ran ./configure --toolchain=msvc
I got back this:

$ ./configure --toolchain=msvc
cl is unable to create an executable file.
If cl is a cross-compiler, use the --enable-cross-compile option.
Only do this if you know what cross compiling means.
C compiler test failed.

If you think configure made a mistake, make sure you are using the latest
version from Git.  If the latest version fails, report the problem to the
ffmpeg-user at ffmpeg.org mailing list or IRC #ffmpeg on irc.freenode.net.
Include the log file "config.log" produced by configure as this will help
solve the problem.

I attached the config.log here

Thank you in advance for your help.
