If so, perhaps point out to the ffmpeg people that their warning is
(at least in some cases) a red herring (alternatively, produces a
false positive), and ask if it could be made more intelligent.

The warning is only printed if the configurations differ. It does not
tell anything different, nor does it try to guess or suggest what may
be the cause of this. so again, I agree with siretart that on systems
that support differently configured shared libraries to work with the
same backend, this warning should be disabled, because it is a red
herring and does not add anything insightful.

Ok. So pointing this out to the ffmpeg people is a waste of time, in your opinion?

If it assures you, I'm Upstream Release Manager for both Libav and
FFmpeg  :-)

Ok, no offense intended. I just feel more comfortable with upstream's blessing. Thank you and thank you to Fabian for your patience with this bug report.

I'm happy that Fabian agrees with me. I'll see if I can propose some configure switch for 0.7, but TBH, the trick with building the libraries in different flavors is a very Debian specific trick that cannot be upstreamed easily. Nor am I convinced that this should go upstream.
