I have Compiled ffmpeg under Ubuntu 10.04 with the steps:
1, purge some package:

sudo apt-get purge libavutil-dev libavutil50 libavutil-extra-50 \
libavcodec-dev libavcodec52 libavcodec-extra-52 libavformat-dev \
libavformat52 libavformat-extra-52 libavdevice-dev libavdevice52 \
libavdevice-extra-52 libavfilter-dev libavfilter1 libavfilter-extra-1 \
libswscale-dev libswscale0 libswscale-extra-0 libpostproc-dev \
libpostproc51 libpostproc-extra-51 gnome-desktop-environment ffmpeg

2, install some codecs dev packages and libsdl dev package:
sudo apt-get install libx264-dev libxvidcore-dev libopencore-amrwb-dev \
libopencore-amrnb-dev libfaad-dev libfaac-dev libmp3lame-dev \
libtwolame-dev liba52-0.7.4-dev libcddb2-dev libcdaudio-dev \
libcdio-cdda-dev libvorbis-dev libopenjpeg-dev libsdl1.2-dev

"git clone git://git.videolan.org/x264.git" and compiled libx264 from

3, configure and install

./configure --enable-nonfree --enable-gpl --enable-version3 \
--enable-shared --enable-postproc --enable-libmp3lame \
--enable-libopenjpeg --enable-libvorbis --enable-libopencore-amrnb \
