Same here, with a locally-built copy from then-current SVN (plus
"internal" FFmpeg) this past October.

The major difference in the output I get from that LD_DEBUG ldd command
is that my copy also reports that libxml2.so.2 depends on liblzma.so.5.
I'd guess that the difference is that I probably enable more optional
things (by installing the necessary dependencies before building) than
the copy you're checking does.
