An faster equivalent that does not involve git is:
$ curl -O http://ffmpeg.org/releases/ffmpeg-snapshot.tar.bz2
$ tar xf ffmpeg-snapshot-git.tar.bz2

> $ cd ffmpeg
> $ ./configure && make ffmpeg
> This could for example fail if you don't have a new enough yasm or nasm
> binary, in that case please try "./configure --disable-yasm", feel free to
> add "--enable-gpl". If you know hat your cpu has - for example - four
> cores, you can use "make -j4 ffmpeg" to speed up compilation.
> This creates a current ffmpeg binary, please test (from the build
> directory) if it allows to reproduce your issue.
> Then edit libavformat/movenc.h and run "make ffmpeg" again to
> get a binary that allows testing if you found the actual issue.
