Is this the list of commands you or a script ran? Because if so, that echo line is the culprit.

You should let make create the version header and .version instead of doing it manually.
But if you must, you need to change version.h with libavutil/ffversion.h because the former is 
not used anymore, and also add some preprocessor guards if run make install.
