Test 1, shared libs. This time I did *not* remove LIB from my environment.

make distclean
  ./configure  --enable-shared --disable-static --disable-strip 
make install

Everything went fine. Only 2 issues: strip not working (hence the 
disable). And if I try and start ffmpeg.exe in a DOS box:

C:\Program Files\FFmpeg>ffmpeg.exe -h
This program cannot be run in DOS mode.

I will try the dlls in VisualStudio ASAP.

Test 2, static libs.

make distclean
./configure  --enable-static --disable-shared --disable-strip 
make install

Compiles OK, but installs only ffmpeg.exe (not the libs, not the 
headers) and same problem running the ffmpeg.exe.
