This is considered the "fine-grained way to tell configure about locations" but
suggestions are certainly welcome!

Yes, this is broken (and not supported on mplayer-users as far as
I am concerned).

That is exactly the reason why I would suggest to compile x264 static next time,
not install it, configure FFmpeg as shown above (but with x264 source paths),
build it and instead of installing FFmpeg just copy the executable where you
need it.

But that is of course not necessary.

As said, I don't think that works automatically.

By the user telling it (for example with pressing "D" in MPlayer).
