First you need libvpx. You can possibly just install libvpx-devel if it
is available in your repository. Current minimum required versions (from
the configure file):

VP9 encoding: >= 1.3.0

Your ffmpeg configure line is blank. You need --enable-libvpx.

binary from:

If possible, please try to avoid sending confidentiality notices to this
