>> There seems to be some problem in the libavcodec/arm/videodsp_armv5te.S assembler file. In that file the label 'ff_prefetch_arm' (line 25) is exported and further down used by a conditional near jump (line 29). The near jump cannot be done if the label is exported within a shared object library. That's at least the explanation I found for myself.

Yes, the diff you suggested does work. (They don't produce the earlier linker error.)
