You can also try the ffmpeg 0.6 package found in debian/experimental.

This is a percularity of C++ against FFmpeg, there are system headers
that behave differently when compiled with a C compared to a C++
compiler; in this case, the __STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS flag is set only in
C, which sets some defines that FFmpeg 0.6 relies on. I agree to Massimo
that this is an implementation detail that OSG users should better not
worry about, in this case, I would find it reasonable for OSG to suggest
and provide the proper CXXFLAGS.

Yes, this way such discussions can be referenced and are less likely to
become forgotten.
