You're right.

What ffmpeg's configure does here is
  test_cmd $pkg_config --exists --print-errors $pkg_version || return
which is basically
  pkg-config --exists --print-errors libbluray

After that succeeds, it determines the CFLAGS and LIBS (silently), and
  check_func_headers "$headers" "$funcs" $pkg_cflags $pkg_libs "$@"
which tries to compile and link a program with the given includes and
functions, in libbluray's case libbluray/bluray.h and bd_open(). But if
it did that, the log would say so, with something like:
  test_ld cc
  BEGIN /tmp/ffconf.TaEECP0n/test.c
which it doesn't here. So the former apparently fails.

I could tell easier if I was on your system. ;-)
