Using that guide "installs" these files to ~/ffmpeg_build. It does it
this way to avoid installing anything to any system directories (and
most users just want the resulting ffmpeg binary anyway). Point your
compiler to that directory, or if desired you can install the files
wherever you want (such as /usr/local/ where I'm assuming you were
assuming they would be).

$ cd ~/ffmpeg_sources/ffmpeg
$ make distclean
$ ./configure
$ make
# make install
