To expand on Sven's answer a little, the FFMPEG project does not provide a
stable API; therefore the GAP includes the source for a specific snapshot
of the code and staticly links to it. The snapshot in the GAP's tree is
from 2005 ; it needs to be updated and the GAP code modified to employ the
new FFMPEG API (also for 64-bit support and GCC4 compatibility as well).

Wolgang Hofer, the main developer of the GAP, is working on that update
but he does not have direct access to the Internet right now. It may be a
few months before updated FFMPEG support is available but it is being
worked on. In the interim, I would suggest disabling libavcodec support
and using an external utility to convert your frames to video.
