What do you mean with "no response"?

I asked you several times how I can reproduce a major
issue (only!) you see and that I cannot reproduce: Your
answers were not helpful!

Another wild guess: Are you redirecting configure somewhere?

I told you that I believe I fixed this usecase but without your
config.log this was absolutely impossible for me to say for
sure, especially since different versions of FFmpeg produce
different issues (that were partly fixed).

I told you a very long time ago (and after that repeatedly) that your
"exact" configure line is not supported here for several reasons.
(Mostly because several options you use make no sense, in a
more general sense one could also argue that --extra-cflags
are never supported except for paths. I hope you also understand
that the more external libraries you enable, the harder - and
often impossible - things get for me to reproduce, even more so
for cases of pkg-config abuse by FFmpeg.)

What do you mean with "hardly helpful"?
We (or if you prefer: I) cannot support a zillion of different build
scripts. We believe that the configure script we provide supports
all possible use-cases (although I currently consider it absolutely
broken but it will not help discussing this here) and I try to
support all kind of issues with it.
Which is exactly what I did for your request, only you neither
helped very much nor gave the necessary feed-back.

I believe I never asked you for this "other informations": As said,
on very different systems a config.log is created here the moment
I start the configure script with valid options.
Without config.log, I had to guess if the issue I see is the one
you see: I am happy that I - apparently - guessed correctly but I
believed I explained in the past that guessing is generally not a
good way of support.
