.def file for corresponding .dll is not generated (possibly because of
problem related to Makefile changes in some older revisions) and
therefore .lib file for this dll is not generated too (.lib file is
generated from .def file using MS librarian). Absence of .lib file
prevents to use .dll in other software (using MS compiler tool chain)
because of linker complains that ffmpeg externals are unresolved.

r5867 - this is what I checked out and tried to compile. Before this I
used some older version (CVS, LIBAVCODEC_VERSION 51.0.0) where
everything was ok.

If you have other questions feel free to ask
