What has a build environment and compilation to 
do with testing a current version of FFmpeg?

Why do you think so?

OS to compile FFmpeg.

This is another lie - not completely unexpected from 
you but still not welcome.

Please stop spreading FUD on this mailing list and 
please try to read my emails before answering, I 
did neither mention nor mean compiling FFmpeg (which
