WARNING: library configuration mismatch

Please note that this is just a warning. It also happens in ubuntu when
one installs the libavcodec-extra-52 package.

Hmm. I'm still getting the error here, but libavcodec-extra-52 is not installed.

TBH, I'm considering applying a distro patch that just disables this
error message, as its not much of use for Debian and Ubuntu.

According to the ffmpeg developers, this reflects a mismatch of versions. Assuming they are correct, and this is not just blowing smoke, then my feeling is that this is caused by insufficiently tight package dependencies, so my suggestion would be to track it down, though this would probably be a comparatively difficult and thankless task even if successful.

It is unfortunate that the warning gives no real indication of where the problem lies.

I don't know if disabling the warning is such a great idea, see as it can, possibly, reflect underlying problems.
