As it is told, you need to re-enable the deprecated img_resample
functions by using --disable-swscale in a recent ffmpeg snapshot.
On the other hand, Fedora 7 is also deprecated since one month after
Fedora 9 is out, so you can also consider to upgrade to a supported
Fedora version where vlc 0.8.6h is available.Longer support is made
available via CentOS (but no vlc pre-built package until rpmfusion.org
is up)
