To test a newly compiled FFmpeg, I just did a quick './ffmpeg' only  
to find it pouring text into my terminal. Out of

% ./ffmpeg |& wc -l

Are you developers quite certain *all* those lines contain  
information relevant to the casual observer? Perhaps it would be  
relevant to do what LAME does:

% lame --help |& wc -l
% lame --longhelp |& wc -l
