I'm trying to install ffmpeg on Ubuntu 10.04 using the tutorial found @

I get to the portion regarding the actual install of ffmpeg and I get the
following error:

ERROR: libmp3lame >= 3.98.3 not found

If you think configure made a mistake, make sure you are using the latest
version from Git.  If the latest version fails, report the problem to the
ffmpeg-user at ffmpeg.org mailing list or IRC #ffmpeg on irc.freenode.net.
Include the log file "config.log" produced by configure as this will help
solving the problem.

I don't know of a good way to get my config.log from my Linux box to my
Windows box through PuTTY.

Any advice on this problem would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you,
