Just to make sure: You know that this is not the 
best h264 encoder available?

The correct way to test FFmpeg is:
$ make SAMPLES=fate-suite fate-rsync
$ make SAMPLES=fate-suite fate
(First one downloads samples, second tests them.)

You will have to move the dynamic library that you 
built to a directory where the dynamic linker can 
find it (or set LD_LIBRARY_PATH) but this has nothing 
to do with FFmpeg.
