[FFmpeg-user] parser not found for codec dvb_teletext

When transcoding programs recorded off DVB-T (Australia),
I'd like to get the 'closed caption' subtitles,
for a friend who has poor hearing.

Using Zeranoe build 20121029, win 32-bit shared:--

input messages contain:
Stream #0:2[0x240](eng): Subtitle: dvb_teletext ([6][0][0][0] / 0x0006)
[mpegts @ 00f04980] parser not found for codec dvb_teletext, packets or
times may be invalid.

output messages contain:
Stream #0:2 -> #0:2 (? -> ass)
Decoder (codec dvb_teletext) not found for input stream #0:2

Google didn't find anything relevant;
seems like nobody wants captions off DVB!

Is the cause simple, like maybe dvb_teletext was not enabled in the build ?
