Thanks for the quick response.

I was following the instructions in the error message from running
./configure which asked to attach config.log and send it to this email.
The config.log was around 108k.
Is that an unusually large config.log or perhaps the message should be

Here is the message again without the log.

I'm running ubuntu 12.04.

Subject: .configure can't locate x264.h
To: ffmpeg-user at mplayerhq.hu

I just pulled fresh from trunk.
I'm trying to build with all options to enable gource dependencies.

last lines from config.log:

-D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -std=c99 -fomit-frame-pointer -pthread -E -o
/tmp/ffconf.2RxuVyAx.o /tmp/ffconf.gaVjnbSu.c
/tmp/ffconf.gaVjnbSu.c:1:18: fatal error: x264.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
ERROR: libx264 not found

However, i did get and build it, and it's in a standard place.
kesten at kesten-K42Jr:/opt/lib/gource-0.40/ffmpeg$ locate x264.h

how can i find where configure is looking for it?
