I am trying to build the most recent development version of vlc-3.0 (git
cloned) from source, but running ./configure gives me the following error:

configure: error: Missing libav or FFmpeg

That is despite I have built from source and installed a fresh ffmpeg-3.2.2
with the following configuration including --enable-shared (see below).
Also, in my /usr/lib directory there is a library libavcodec.a ,
libavcodec.so.57.64.101 with symbolic links to it libavcodec.so and
libavcodec.so.57 .

Maybe I need to pass some additional flag to vlc-3.0 to force it to notice
my libavcodec library? If yes, what flags should I try?

ffmpeg configure options (just in case): --prefix=/usr --enable-gpl
--disable-stripping --enable-avresample --enable-avisynth --enable-gnutls
--enable-ladspa --enable-libass --enable-libbluray --enable-libbs2b
--enable-libcaca --enable-libcdio --disable-libebur128
--enable-libfontconfig --enable-libfreetype --enable-libfribidi
--enable-libgme --enable-libgsm --enable-libmodplug --enable-libmp3lame
--enable-libopenjpeg --enable-libopus --enable-libpulse
--enable-librubberband --enable-libsnappy --enable-libsoxr
--enable-libspeex --enable-libssh --enable-libtheora --enable-libtwolame
--enable-libvorbis --enable-libvpx --enable-libwavpack --enable-libwebp
--enable-libx265 --enable-libxvid --enable-libzmq --enable-libzvbi
--enable-omx --enable-openal --enable-opengl --enable-sdl2
--enable-libdc1394 --enable-libiec61883 --enable-libopencv --enable-frei0r
--enable-libx264 --enable-chromaprint --enable-shared

Best regards,
