I'm trying to compile FFmpeg 1.0 "Angel" with following configure :

./configure  --enable-gpl --enable-encoder=mpeg2video  --enable-version3 /

then compilation return following error :

Unknown option "--soname-prefix".
See ./configure --help for available options.

and when i'm running ffmpeg/configure --help command. "--soname-prefix" opetion is not available in Standard options list but this option is available in FFmpeg 0.11.2 "Happiness"

Please help me and if any new options is introduce in latest FFMPEG 1.0

Can't find --soname-prefix in ./configure script for both versions 0.11.2 and 1.0. But I think, if this is an option to library path, you need --extra-ldflags="-L/your/libs"

you known diff between --soname-prefix and --extra-ldflags .--soname-prefix if available in all lower version – ρяσѕρєя K Nov 22 '12 at 9:29
I never used --soname-prefix, but i guess it's not a path definition, but prefix to library names (really don't know)? Which version is last you know, it is using this option? – week Nov 22 '12 at 9:42
