[MPlayer-users] Mplayer Encoding Failure

This has always worked for me with previous installs of mencoder-686 and
mplayer but I upgraded mplayer to the cvs in the last 48-hours for
better embedded multimedia functionality. 

I compiled with fakeroot debian/rules binary

Mencoder is failing with no support for libavcodec which is installed.
How do I manually edit the config.h or config.mak to tell it to enable
support so I can recompile using fakeroot blah, blah for a debian

Here is error:
