Sorry - top-posting is the default in my email client. Posting at the
bottom does make more sense :-)

Your suggestion of an issue with live55 libraries made me look at the
output from configure when building mencoder:

Checking for LIVE555 Streaming Media libraries ... no

Which doesn't sound good - especially since I had just successfully built
the live55 libraries in /usr/lib/live

I tried explicitly stating the library path with:

./configure --extracflags=-I/usr/lib/live

With no change in the output of the configure script :-p
