It seems you are missing some dependencies. On Mint I use:

sudo apt-get -y install autoconf automake build-essential libass-dev
libfreetype6-dev libgpac-dev \
  libsdl1.2-dev libtheora-dev libtool libva-dev libvdpau-dev
libvorbis-dev libx11-dev \
  libxext-dev libxfixes-dev pkg-config texi2html zlib1g-dev yasm
libx264-dev \
  libdc1394-22 libdc1394-22-dev libgsm1 libgsm1-dev libopenjpeg-dev \
  libschroedinger-1.0-0 libschroedinger-dev libschroedinger-doc
libspeex-dev \
  libfaac-dev libmp3lame-dev libopencore-amrnb-dev libopencore-amrwb-dev \
  libvorbis-dev libx11-dev libxfixes-dev libxvidcore-dev libopus-dev
libvpx-dev \
  librtmp-dev libtwolame-dev

Also, have a look at the FFmpeg compile guide:
