Hi all,

I'm looking for some help on FFmpeg in the context of compiling Kdenlive.
The build stops at FFmpeg, with the error:
LOG: About to run command: popd
LOG: Configuring, compiling, and installing FFmpeg
LOG: About to run command: pushd .
~/kdenlive/install/src ~/kdenlive/install/src

ERROR: libtheora not found

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.
ERROR: Unable to configure FFmpeg
LOG: Process has finished. Reason: FAILURE Some kind of error occured:
Unable to configure FFmpeg
[Tommi at localhost install]$ rpm -qa | grep libtheora
[Tommi at localhost install]$

As instructed in the error I compiled FFmpeg to the latest tar.gz2, but to
no avail. Libtheora was showing as installed at the very first run, and it
still shows up (see last command). Before my last test it showed also in
version i686, but even removing this apparent duplicate did nothing.

Enclosed is the config.log

Please consider that I am not that sophisticated of a linux user. It is my
first in compiling anything on my own. I am running under Fedora 23 - Gnome.

My kindest regards, and thanks in advance,
Giampaolo & Thomas
