Hi all,

I have tried to configure the latest version of ffmpeg from git using the following tutorial:
I have Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 and downloaded all latest libraries

However, I faced 2 issues:

1/ ./configure --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libfaac --enable-libfaad --enable-gpl --enable-nonfree --enable-shared --disable-mmx --arch=x86_64 --cpu=core2 --enable-libx264 --enable-static
Returns the error :Unknown option "--enable-libfaad". Despite the fact that this is already installed

2/ ./configure --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libfaac --enable-gpl --enable-nonfree --enable-shared --disable-mmx --arch=x86_64 --cpu=core2 --enable-libx264 --enable-static
ERROR: libx264 not found
Once again x264 is installed

Can you please tell me what I might be doing wrong ?
I was using MacPort before updating to the latest ffmpeg version 1.1.2.
