As Matt mentioned, if Ubuntu already has a copy of librtmp.so.0
installed (ie. in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/), the Ubuntu-supplied copy
is probably being loaded instead of the desired one. (Note: if other
packages are depending on that version of librtmp, don't replace it
with the new version!)

You can use `ldd /path/to/rtmpdump` to see what libraries are being
loaded. You can also use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to override the directory
that's being searched first.

But hey, if you use my patch
you'll get a unique filename (librtmp.so.1) which won't collide with
the old one!
