I have followed the instructions at:
I have installed msys and yasm.
I have set up the build environment.
I clone ffmpeg with 'git clone git://source.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.git
I run
./configure --target-os=win64 --arch=x86_64 --toolchain=msvc
--enable-shared --disable-static
configure finishes with "WARNING: pkg-config not found, library detection
may fail."
I run "make".
I get two xyz.mak:n: *** missing separator errors.
These are solved by inserting a tab between $( and eval in the relevant
Then run "make" again and I get:
make: *** No rule to make target 'libavdevice/avdevice.dll', needed by
'all-yes'. Stop.

Any suggestions gratefully received.
