libfaad support was dropped from ffmpeg on 2010-06-20. Anything that
tells you that faad is a requirement for installing ffmpeg should be

What does the tail of config.log show? Also, I hope you weren't trying
to install ffmpeg from SVN as that terribly outdated guide suggests.

Did you know recent static builds are available?
