The tail of config.log indicates you don't have libvpx
headers installed:
> -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=600 -DPIC -std=c99 -fomit-frame-pointer -fPIC
> -pthread -I/usr/include/fribidi -I/usr/include/freetype2
> -I/usr/include/freetype2 -I/usr/include/opus -c -o /tmp/ffconf.EotNgbBy.o
> /tmp/ffconf.LHhoBzvf.c
> /tmp/ffconf.LHhoBzvf.c:1:29: error: vpx/vpx_decoder.h: No such file
> or directory

Are you missing the development package?
