I agree, but this looks like a bug and I am trying to fix it, or at least
pinpoint the patch that caused it.

I know I know. The interesting part is

- the command line I'm using used to work a few weeks ago
- this error message is completely bogus

Also interesting is that git bisect can't locate the offending patch,
I guess that has something to do with the large imports from "qatar".

Still, my question remains, can anyone try this with a current version
of ffmpeg (x86_64), so I know if it's something I borked, although I
have an almost clean tree (a few totally unrelated patches, they've been
the same for months).
