Please understand that on osx, only current FFmpeg is supported.

> Mac-mini-di-Denis:ffmpeg-3.2.2 denis$ ./configure --enable-gpl --enable-nonfree --enable-libx264 --enable-shared --disable-ffmpeg --disable-ffplay --disable-ffprobe --disable-ffserver --disable-opencl --enable-version3 --enable-gpl --enable-version3 --enable-nonfree --enable-postproc --enable-pthreads --enable-x11grab

This configure line looks very unusual:
What are you planning to do with the resulting binaries?

At least --enable-postproc and --enable-pthreads have no effect.

Did you read this?

You didn't tell where you installed it.
If it is in the default location "/usr/local", it should be picked up
