In the NB-XXX builds they are all complaining about faad. See e.g.
which ends with:

install_name_tool: can't open file: 
(No such file or directory)
make[2]: *** [.faad] Error 1

Of course when this is fixed the ffmpeg problem will resurface I know :)

With a completely clean build (remove whole of extras/contrib and start 
from scratch) it was not building for me either.

Cool! Thanks.

OK that makes sense, because the modules are shared libraries themselves
