Repeat after me: "DLL... HELL! DLL... HELL!..."

The best thing to do is a global search for libavutil.dll, .def, .lib, 
libavcodec blah blah, libavformat blah blah. Delete any you find. 
Recompile and reinstall.

I dont know where make install puts the dlls under mingw, but if its in 
a different place than ffmpeg.exe, that's looking for trouble. IMNSHO.
