Why not split out the compile and linking fase of these few locations  
that have the compile and linking flags combined?
Its little overhead, doesn't affect the readability of the Makefiles  
and doesn't introduce extra complexity that is confusing. The  
affected ffmpeg areas must be disabled in VLC, because I have no such  
issue on the VLC 10.3 SDK build.

Just a thought,

BTW. please search the archive for previous mac intel, cross compile  
and universal patches. there have been submitted several. And the  
fact that no one cleaned any of them up to ffmpeg-commit status,  
doesn't mean they were useless and didn't solve or indicate much of  
the issues you might potentially have to trace. No reason to do that
