Ah, nice, an RPM-based distibution. :-)

Does libquvi-devel contain libquvi.pc? Because that's what ffmpeg's
configure is looking for:

My libquvi (0.4) does contain it:
% rpm -ql libquvi-devel

And /usr/lib/pkgconfig is in the default pkg-config search path.

My test results would be:
% pkg-config --exists --print-errors libquvi
% echo $?

I see the next issue coming though:
ffmpeg uses this include in its source:
> #include <quvi/quvi.h>

I don't see that provided by libquvi-0.9 (at least not in Fedora). But
that would be a different error message. Perhaps ffmpeg's quvi support
isn't adapted to the 0.9 API yet anyway.
"The new C API of libquvi breaks all backward-compatibility with the
0.4 series".
But I have no idea though, and haven't found any (positive or negative)
indicators in the ffmpeg source or trac.
