On a recently (yesterday) updated fedora 10 with the stock ffmpeg installed:

  ffmpeg-devel.i386                 0.4.9-0.55.20080908.fc10
  ffmpeg-libs.i386                  0.4.9-0.55.20080908.fc10

the following two commits need to be reverted to compile. Note that a
full bootstrap/configure/make doesn't complain until the actual file
is compiled, that is configure freshly regenerated doesn't catch the
problem and the source isn't tooled to support the previous ffmpeg.

commit d9271cf6803cf47d19eb07170ee0f2778db7d34e

    Added support for avcodec audio channel layout.

commit 96c92ae914fa80fff8cc369f4fd297af0b47203f
Author: Laurent Aimar <fenrir at videolan.org>

    Try to setup avcodec audio format as soon as possible.

    It will help the buggy transcode stream_out module.
