yep, I want, of course, to compile it static too.
The pb is that configure does not look for libavcodec.a and ffmpeg
headers where the ffmpeg Makefile puts them (using make install and make
installlib rules).
             ffmpeg                 configure
.a   usr/lib/libavcodec.a   ${real_ffmpeg_tree}/libavcodec/libavcodec.a
.h   usr/include/ffmpeg/*h  ${with_ffmpeg}/include/libffmpeg/*.h

so my question is why ? you certainly have excellent reasons, but i can
not figure them. historycal ones ? debian packages are doing this way ?
using ffmpeg Makefile install, installlib is bad because..
Simply using ${real_ffmpeg_tree}/libavcodec.a and ${with_ffmpeg}/include
won't prevent to work for you too (just re-adjust path tree).
